Remember the grainy photo from last week and the promise of a bit of yarny goodness to the person who guessed what it was? Here are the results.
There were two many good answers to have only one winner, so I’ll engage in a bit of stash reduction and send yarn for all of the following answers.
Hmm — it's either the yarn you took with you on your vacation, or it's the yarn you bought along the way…….

(Jennifer, you know the Judge well enough to know he wasn’t letting me near a yarn store on this trip after my “excesses” on the Arkansas trip – mmmm Alpaca!)
Yep, I'm guessing it's the projects you took with you on vacation.

This one is very close too; and I like the image:
it's your dream basket… a mix of WIP and projects that are crying out to be cast-on.

It was actually the basket of all of my knitting works in progress (WIPs) that I took on vacation last week:
• The Manos Silk Shrug
• Baby Bolero
There was also yarn for a few projects that I wanted to cast on.
I managed to start an organic cotton baby sweater.
I also swatched for the Chantal Sweater in Rowan's Big Row (for those of you who noticed, Juliet is smaller than when I left due to a nagging issuing involving me not realizing until lace repeat four that I had misread line 2 of the pattern. Chantal's relative ease may be just what I need to get me through Juliet)
And, I felt compelled to bring along some “extra” yarn and my Option needles because I live in fear of running out. Some leftover Shibui I want to do Saartje’s Baby Booties out of, some of my own yarn to knit myself a hat, and a few other things because really, what if it had rained all week or something?
Next is my favorite answer, because it is so true!
It's a basket of time well spent.

And this post really stopped me in my tracks, because it’s the answer that should have been. I wonder if I could start a prison knitting ministry?
Well, it's quite obvious that these are odd balls of yarn that you are donating to a women's prison so that the inmates (is that a politically correct term?)can learn to knit. This way, when they re-enter society, they can spend time knitting and not revert to their former, ill-advised illegal pursuits.

If your comment is included in this post, will you email me with your address?
(joyce at elliebelly dot com) Joanne is getting fabric because I know she makes art dolls. Here is some of the other yarn I’m sending out.
