Competition Winner and Folksy Friday

I recently ran a competition on my blog to carry out a bit of market research for an upcoming craft fair, just to help me make things that people will actually buy. I had a great response - many thanks to everyone for taking the time to enter. I really appreciate it. It will help me to knit the right sorts of thing for my craft fairs and my shops. The results are at the bottom of the post, in case you want to use them yourself.

I wrote all 15 names down on slips of paper and popped them into a bag. My little boy picked the winner. And the winner is ............
