Tink, you won a skein of sock yarn specially dyed by Laura at the Unique Sheep.

(Please email me your address to: bysarahs (at) gmail (dot) com.)
She won't be able to send it out to you until Monday, because YOU are getting the very first skein of her colorway inspired by the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. This is what she had to say about the yarn:

"it is inspired by my visit to the festival last spring. My mom and I took a roadtrip all the way from North Carolina and had an awesome weekend. The weather had just started turning warm and spring had finally arrived. The sun was warm but the air was still crisp and refreshing. On the drive back we reflected on the "colors" that the festival made us think about-- the crisp and clear light blue sky, the green of the grass growing on the festival grounds-- especially the parking lot!, and the yellow of flowers blooming in the fields where the shepherds demonstrated with their border collies."

I think you are in for a real treat because this is one of the Unique Sheep's other "inspired" colorways:

Wow!
