Entries for the yarny give-away closed last night.

All the names were placed in a bowl:

    Cue drum roll, a slightly mad dog and a mixing bowl…

    Well done ItwasJudith, because it was, and commiserations everyone else. Remember, it isn’t whether you win or lose, it’s where you place the blame.


  4. No commiserations required – that was so much fun to watch! It’s good to know that Siddy isn’t the only pup who gets over excited and out of his tree when there is a camera in operation 🙂 The happy winner will be knitting something gorgeous! Well done Mr and Ms Snail! and Sam ❤

  6. Congrats, ItwasJudith! And look at the cutie MC!

  7. We’re both sitting here still cackling gently at the selection performance. A dog who really knows how to prolong the joy!

    • She’s just a show-off! Camera not on her and she selected a piece of paper immediately… camera on and the draw for real and she’s dancing around making sure she gets as much air time as possible!!

  8. Many many thanks for the beautiful presents!! I still can’t believe my luck! What an honour to be picked up by Sam and announced in such a cool video 🙂
    You’re a special family, I must say! Thank you

  9. It’s a fix. It’s always a fix when it isn’t me.Recount, recount, recount…….. Grudging congratulations to Judith.

    Huge Hugs xxxxxxxx

  10. Oh, my–I thought only cats were that contrary! But sweet Sam came through in the end! Congrats to Judith!

  11. This may be the best random selection process I have ever seen!
