Hey Everybody!
I'm hosting another contest on my blog (http://whimsicalknitting.blogspot.com/2006/10/what-time-is-it-contest-time.html). Come on by and enter!
This contest was conjured up by by me and Angelia! I think it's going to be a riot!
It's "Show Me Your Knitting! Make me LAUGH OUT LOUD!" I want pics of your knitting, but not pics of what it was intended to be...make me laugh! I don't wanna see hats on heads or gloves on hands, etc...I want to see your hat doing something funny other than warming a head, etc....this should be very, very interesting and lots of fun! I can't wait to see the pics :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:
Almost forgot, the prize is a 365 Knitting Stitches a Year Perpetual Calendar (http://store.martingale-pub.com/catalog/index.cfm?fuseaction=product&id=316), I LOVE mine :cheering:

Thank you all so much for entering...I received a LOT of great photos (http://whimsicalknitting.blogspot.com/2006/11/contest-photos.html)! Boy, I'm sure happy that I didn't have to choose the winner! Lonnie was supposed to choose, but he couldn't decide on a winner because all the entries are really great, so I used a free random # generator (http://www.saccenti.com/randomnumber/randomnumber.htm) after assigning a number to each entry and the lucky winner is none other than :balloons: OUR :present: WONDERFUL :blooby: Sandra, better known as Mint Dee (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5071) :yay: :woohoo:
Sandra won http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_conteststuff.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/conteststuff.jpg) yummilicious Malabrigo and a 365 st perpetual calendar! :blooby:

CONGRATS, MY FRIEND :muah:

Now, I'm for real headed to bed, not return to KH for some time, after the doc's orders today, please pray both for my recovery and that Lonnie doesn't get too mad at me for staying at computer too long finalizing the contest :roll: And keep your prayers coming, please :muah:

It's hard to stay away because I miss ya'll so much because I can't get out anymore like i used to to socialize and I enjoy keeping up with all of you!

Go me Go ME !! Woooooo!!! I honestly did not think that I was going to win with all those entries! (KK I loved Howie wearing the Willie Warmer. He didn't look all that happy about his mommy doing that hehe)
I look forward to seeing my prize (and drooling over said prize)

Jan, I resent that remark, I thought a few of them were pretty darn clever. Especially mine. HA!

We had a great time at our home gasping and giggling at some of the photos.

Congrats MintDee! This was so much fun.

Thanks Becka for putting all this together.

KK, I thought he was um, adorable!

I PROMISE....my honest to goodness last post until the doc lifts the bedrest order!

I wanted to say thanks again to everyone! This was such fun! LOL, Lonnie couldn't decide which one to pick and I knew that there was NO WAY that I could so we relied on the handy dandy computer generated random number chooser!

LOL, I wanted to give everyone a prize, but that wouldn't have been a contest...just a giveaway, lol! I always had a favorite, too, everytime I looked at the photos I would decide on THE ONE...until the next time I looked....then I had another favorite, and so on and so on :roflhard: :rofl:

Ya'll are all so creative, that's for certain! And you did just what I asked yo to do....MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD :cheering: :cheering:

Now, we have to think of an exceptional contest for Jan or Feb :cheering:
:muah: :hug: :muah: :hug: to all of you, I miss you SO MUCH :muah: :hug: :muah: :hug: :muah:
