Help ... I need advice re: a wonderful problem

I need advice for a really great dilemma that I have ... I won a contest at Laverna's blog (she just had a birthday yesterday .. pop over and give her some birthday wishes!). The prize is a $40.00 gift card to an on-line store of my choice! (Laverna is very generous ~ I can't believe I won!)

Can you see why I need advice?

I am thinking yarn (of course!) or yarn related paraphernalia, but am not sure what shop to get the card for! Help me in my shopping spree!

I was thinking maybe a set of the Knit Picks wooden Harmony DPNs, or maybe a card for the Little Knits site (seems like there is always a sale there - the money would really really stretch!), maybe a card to Blue Moon and get some Socks That Rock, or somewhere fabulous that I have never shopped before - Loopy Ewe or Sweet Sheep ... I don't know! There are too many choices.

Help a sist'a out ... what would you get if you had this wonderful prize suddenly presented to you?

Hmm...good prize. I would have to choose Loopy Ewe because they have great stuff. But you could probably get more for the money at Knit Picks. I have been wanting to try some of the new handpaints and kettle dyed stuff there.

I have to say Knit Picks. Then you can get the needles among other things. I would use it for items I will have always to knit with. There will always be yarn out there, but this way you can get needles and gadgets to knit with!
Congrats!

I would have to vote Knit Picks as well. The Harmony dpns are by far my favourite needles and you would love them!

What about from my shop!? www.robynsnest.ca!

Lucky you! What a great prize!

The Sweet Sheep is a good place, and it's in Canada so no duty. Knitpicks is the place, though, if you want needles and stuff.

I'm going to play odd woman out and say Blue Moon. Indulge in something different maybe?

Oh those harmony dpns sure do look lovely so I have to go with that. You would get so much use out of them! Unless of course you are contemplating a move to two circulars in which case I would say go for some outrageously indulgent yarn.

I LOVE Knitpicks Harmony needles and Sheri over at the Loopy Ewe is fantastic. That's a hard choice but if it where me I'd be stuck between those two!

Cheers,
Your secret pal
