Borocco contest
Has anyone tried to find the icon to sign up for the free book? I have followed the clues and gotten nowhere

Here's the clue:

Start where the heart is.
Waste no time, go to the greens.
March on, to where all butterflies like to be.
If you know the ropes,
this ancient language
reveals a treasure to behold.

And here's the webpage:

Well at first I thought Oh stat with the heart then click on the chest area of the picture. But then there was nothing that was green that wasclickable so then I went back and started clicking on stuff to see if it would lead to somehting green. I went to the patterns page and there a bunch of scarves and I clicked on a gren one which led to images of yarn tied up into what is commonly known among knitters as a butterfly bobbin. So then I started clicking like mad but nothing came up that looked like rope (altho I did try some colorways that were called cowboy but got nothin) and so now I'm stumped.

Well, Venus is the Roman goddess of love...

But, beyond that, I'm stumped.

Ok, since I have been lurking for the past month or so, I finally decided to register. I have really enjoyed and learned from everyones posts.

My mom and I worked on the contest on Saturday until we found the icon. I deleted my newsletter e-mail, so I don't have the clues anymore, but here is what I did to find it. First, start at the home page because "home is where the heart is". Then, click on the "22 Free Bag/Tote Patterns" link. I think the bag in the photo must look green to the Berocco people. Then, click on the "Flora" link since butterflies like flowers. Then click on the "Take a tour of the web Gallery for Ultra Alpaca". This picture has some cables on it, so I guess we call that ropes. Then I clicked on the 3rd picture down on the left hand side. I chose this picture because it said to "March On" and march is the 3rd month. This is the Hibito Cardigan. According to Google, Hibito is an extinct Peruvian language. When I clicked on the instructions link, I found the free book icon on that page. It is not there today. Maybe the contest is over???
