  1. So many comments to make 1 - Don't feel badly about sharing your contest winnings. I loved seeing the great colors and it made me happy for you! 2 - I love that elephant, too and just bought the pattern last week. It will be for my grandson!! 3- Whiskey looks a little more awake today. Maybe he was just learning his new surroundings and getting used to you all. If he was a rescue, I'd think he would be a little wary! I'm a teacher, too. We got out June 1st and I've been knitting ever since!!

  2. Great giveaway! Thanks! Your dog looks like such a sweethearth!
