And the winner is......

...well if I told you now you wouldn't keep reading.  Here are the answers!

1. Waving Laces sock were for Aunt Ann
2. Anniversary socks (wrapped while still on the needles) for Mom
3. Retro Rib for FIL
4. The cabled socks for SIL
5. Old Shale shawl for Mamie
6. Monkeys for SIL
7. Old Navy for MIL
8. Fingerless gloves for Dad

So that makes 1H, 2E, 3D, 4C, 5B, 6A, 7F, 8G.  Two people got 6/8 correct and they got a triple entry for the prize (Way to go Jennifer and Amber)

I did get my Mom's socks finished.  They are ready to mail today!

Pattern: Anniversary Socks from Favorite Socks
Yarn:  Louet Gems undyed 
Needles: 1.5 Magic loop done 2 at a time
Mods:  Make sure to check the errata
New things learned:  The heel was fun, it was kind of checked the way the reinforcement went and the toe had three spots of decreasing.  Maybe Mom will send us a pic with them on.

Back to the contest....I did a random number generator....CONGRATS
I'll be talking to you tonight about your prize!  Thanks everyone for playing and being such super blog friends.  I wish I had enough handspun to send it to all of you!
