Every year we have a little bit of fun in our Gettin’ It Pegged! Yahoo Chat Group, where we celebrate the closing of the previous year’s accomplishments and look forward with anticipation to the New Year. We have a few categories to that our members participate in to earn drawing entries for prizes. We also play a couple of games and just plain enjoy each others’ company. 🙂
This year’s prize categories included:
Loomy To-Do Progress List: This is a place for listing all those projects that we have hanging around on our looms and just can’t find their way to being completed…yes, UFOs! (Un-Finished Objects) For each UFO that was completed during 2011, the loomer receives an entry into the drawing.
Let me tell you a little more about this category…
These items on this list are the forgotten ones, the difficult ones to master, the ones we just don’t want to get around to doing, lol. So to be able to mark these items as completed is an amazing accomplishment. We had listed in the group TWENTY SIX completed items in the UFO database for 2011! Great job, Gettin’ It Pegged Loomers!
The winning randomly drawn name in this category is:
Kelly completed 4 UFO’s this year! Yay for Kelly!!! I need to also mention that she complete the top number of loom knitting Christmas gifties for 2011 (described in the below category), at the grand total of THIRTY SEVEN! Her friends and family are so lucky to have her as their loomy Santa! 😀
Countdown to Christmas at the Clique 2011: This is where we get to plan our loom knitting projects that we intend for holiday gifts. It helps to see them all in one place, organized and easily refreshed with our progress. For each completed gift in 2011, the loomer received a drawing entry.
Let me tell you a little bit more about this category…
As a group we had a total of ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE projects finished and given as Christmas Gifts in 2011! Soft fluffy things make great gifts, don’t you think?
There were a total of three winning numbers randomly drawn in this group:
Jennifer worked like a crazy woman this year and managed to complete a total of THIRTY SIX loomy gifts this year! Isn’t that terrific?! I so much enjoyed hearing her updates about her wild ride of holiday looming, all accomplished in a very short time frame and squeaked in-between her very hectic daily life schedule. 🙂
Debbie completed a total of SIX loomy holiday gifts this year…her family and friends are blessed indeed! Way to go, Debbie!
Jenny’s completed number of Christmas loomy goodness this year was TWENTY TWO items! …and these are just her loom knitted goodies, as I know that she also completed quite a few gifts that were created with crochet. Whew! That’s a lot of fibery gifted goodies!
These ladies deserve a long and loud round of applause for a job well done!
Here are the five prize choices that you all get to choose from. I’m going to list them here and whichever of you is the first to claim an item in the comments of this post gets to keep it. (a second choice would be nice too, in case the first has already been claimed) (…then of course, I’ll need your addresses emailed to me privately at Bethany@Gettinitpegged.com… thanks!)
1) a Hard Copy of Loom Knitting for Little People!
2) a Digital PDF Copy of Loom Knitting for Little people!
3) an adorably fun Loomy Coffee Mug!
4) this 2 Cool 4 Stix Tote!
5) a copy of the companion tutorial DVD to the book, LKLP!
ps…if more than one of you would like a digital copy of LKLP, or the DVD as your prize instead of the other items, just let me know…I’m cool with that. 😉
Party Game Winners:
We played a rousing game of LOOMY BINGO this week…so fun! 😀 We had three lucky winners:
Kelly Jones was our first winner
June Legault was our second
and Jenny Young was our blackout winner!
Yay for all of these lucky ladies! 😀
We also held an exhilarating SHEEP HUNT right here at gettinitpegged.com. There were three fluffy little sheep hidden in the pages of this site. I thought I hid them pretty well, but it only took these eagle-eyed gals a total of 17 minutes to find them all, lol! Leave it to people who loom knit as a hobby to notice the little details. I bet they’d be terrific at finding a needle (especially a yarn needle, lol) in a hay stack too! 😉
Big Hurrahs for:
1) Stacy Jozwiak!
2) Jenny Stark!
3) and Kim Jones!
You lucky and very observant ladies get to choose from the prizes below. The same deal applies as with the prizes above. Be the first to claim a prize in the comments of this post and the prize is yours! (Please provide a second choice also, just in case your first has been chosen. 😉 I already have all of your addys, so no worries there.)
1) one full and one only slightly used (lol) skein of sparkly blue Bernat Ping Pong yarn!
2) one full skein of Charisma Loops & Threads in camouflage yarn!
3) a copy of the companion tutorial DVD to the book, LKLP!
4) your choice of any individual pattern at the Gettin’ It Pegged! Artifire Shop!
4) I will have several sets of really cute peg markers (which unfortunately I don’t have pics of yet 😉 ) paired with a laminated Kitchener Stitch Pocket Guide!
ps…if more than one of you would like a peg marker set, a copy of the LKLP companion DVD, or a choice of a gettinitpegged pattern as your prize instead of the other items, just let me know…I’m cool with that. 😉
Alrighty! Wasn’t that fun? Thank you so much to all of you wonderful loomers who have joined me over this last year. I’ve been so honored to have loomed along with you and am very much looking forward to seeing what kinds of fibery fun we can cook up for 2012! 😀
Happy Looming to you all!
Wow, sounds like you all had a great time! Congratulations to the winners.
Yay!!!! Thank you so much Bethany. I’d love to have another tote for the UFO prize and Isaiah likes the ping pong yarn for the bingo prize. Congrats to the other winners!
It was great fun Bethany!
I’ve been lusting after your Heather Rose Wristers for some time now so WHOO HOO that’s for me!
And again thank you so very much!
Fun, fun way to usher in the year, Bethany 🙂 If you have an extra tote hanging around, I’d love to have one. If not, I’d love to pick up another one of your patterns. Hugs!
Congrats to all the winners! I’d love some of the cute peg markes that you don’t have pictured. I don’t have any but the basics, so that would be a great addition to my stuff! If they’re taken, I’ll take the warm woolies pattern, Thanks so much for all the fun!
WOW! Congrats to all!
I would love a copy of your cook, or the cd (as 2nd). Especially since I have kinda been a bit afraid of kids items! Love to see your hard and loving work. Thank you for honoring us all, Bethany! What a great mentory love you are! Jen – making a tenant wait while I comment! LOL!
(oh – I am at Jennifer Tavernier – 151 W. Taylor St. mgr#10, Reno, Nv 89509
OOPS BOOK! (me and my typos) – funny, my stitches aren’t anywhere as loopy as my typos.
Maybe they will come out with the dragon software (computer vocal) only you ‘write’ by loom stitches – I would get tons done! lol Jen
Congrats to everyone and thank you Bethany for creating such a fun folled environment for us to bond and loom! I would love to receive a copy of the companion DVD to go along with my book that I purchased right before the holidays 🙂 Thanks again!
~ Kim Jones
Thank you for drawing my name! That really made my day.
I’d love a copy of the DVD if that is possible. That would help me take my knitting on the go much easier with the Netbook. 🙂
Congrats to all the winners! You did well! I promise to become more active in the group this year. Hoping I can do the Mr, Wobbles for my hubby, Randy as a gift for “Debbie Sitting” when I get my spinal injections next week. LOL
