It's Time for the Contest!!!

After much thought I decided to go with the popular choice and do a Scavenger Hunt!
The Rules:


1. You need to answer each of these clues using a picture found online (when you email your results to me the photos can either be in your email or in a link). You may NOT create the answer on your blog, it must be found elsewhere online, it doesn't have to be on a blog, but blogs are preferable. Another note, I need a photo, any photo of the answer will be fine, for example, if I were to ask, "Who was the 1st president of the US?" I would not require this photo of George, any photo of GW will do.


2. For each photo that you obtain from a blog you will get an additional point. Your name will be entered in the contest again for each additional point that you accumulate.
When you have the answers email me with your answers (all in one email, please).


3. If your answers are correct, I will email you back and you can then place this Treasure Map on your blog to show that you have answered correctly. Your name will then be entered to win the cool knitty gear.


4. You are NOT to give any hints to any of the answers on your blog, the only evidence that you have completed the Hunt will be the Treasure Map.


5. The Hunt begins today and will end on Wednesday, September 27, 2006 at noon EST. The winner will be randomly chosen from all of the entries. I will announce the winner on Thursday, September 28, 2006.


If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ASK, email me.
The will be 2 luscious hanks of Lornas Laces sock yarn , a set of dpns and the pattern for Leaves of Whimsy socks!!

Looks like fun!! I hope I can find time... I'll have to consult my dad though, some of the clues are a little ahead of my time... ;-)
