Oops....well here's a contest

Amidst all the confusion of the Canada Post lock-out - Mom and I missed our anniversary!
On June 19, Wandering Cat Yarns turned two!!! And we totally forgot.

Since it's never too late to celebrate - here's a contest.

In honour of our Birthday - you can win your own Cheshire Cat Stripey sock kit!
The kit will contain one 400 yard skein of your choice of Alley Cat, Barn Cat or Top cat, hand dyed in Cheshire Cat Self Striping, as well as a 100 yard heel and toe skein dyed in either Slate (grey pictured) or Cheshire Aqua (again, your choice).
To enter, simply leave a comment before midnight on June 30, 2011. Winner will be chosen by random number generator on July 1, 2011 and announced here.

Good luck!

Amazing colourway! I've wanted to try your yarn for such a long while. Monika raves about you and although she doesn't know it she has enabled me plenty of times!

Happy belated anniversary! This postal lockout must suck for you guys, not being able to ship any purchases out. I'm very thankful that I had nothing coming in the mail, and all my stuff is direct deposit, lol.
