Sew Grateful-Pattern Giveaway

(ETA: Blogger is driving me batty. I have no idea which pictures, if any, are showing up; please scroll all the way to the bottom. I will publish this, and try to edit it (again) in the morning. Maybe Blogger is just cranky from lack of sleep. Gah!!)

It certainly doesn't feel like the end of February so Debi's Sew Grateful Week rather took me by surprise. I'm sure I have some fabric and other things to giveaway, but I am running out of time (I'm going to my visit my parents in the morning) so the patterns will have to do.

Without further ado...

Please tell me which one(s) you would like before midnight CST on February 28. If I have multiple requests, I will use the same 'random number generator' I used last year to pick the winners. I will mail anywhere, but please leave your contact information either with your comment, or have it easily accessible on the link to your name.

I'm Now Proficient at Felting

 Unfortunately, I didn't want to felt this cap but it was much too big after I blocked it. So I put it in the wash on what I thought was a cold cycle (sometimes my washing machine reverts to the temperature of the previous wash settings. A rather irritating situation).
Unblocked but fits fine.

   Fooled me. And, then it was like Goldilocks all over again.

Accidentally felted; too small.
 So I put it upside down in the sink to see if I could block it bigger again (I don't even know if that is possible), but it just floated around for the longest time (and I stood there watching. Squirrel!). So windproof and water resistant.

Second blocking.
That would be great if I wasn't living somewhere so very COLD (it's going down to -31C again tonight!!) and precipitation came in liquid form.
 Like everyone else, I am so done with winter!!

Very brief Ravelry notes here.
