What time is it?! CONTEST time!

What time is it?!


Oh yeah! I'm ready to host another blog contest. This one is going to be a LOT of FUN! Not too long after the last contest, the Scavenger Hunt, my friend Angelia and I were discussing a few fun contest themes and from those talks I decided on this contest....

Show me pictures of your knitting.
WAIT....that's not all!

I want to see photos of your knitting projects being modeled as something of which they were not originally intended!
For example, remember one of my posts a few days back when Sally was wearing a hat that I was knitting for me. Well, this is sort of what this contest is about. You see, I want more abstract photos, I want to see photos of your knitting that aren't even close to what the knitting is intended to be...I don't want to see hats on heads (even if it is a dog's head!)! I don't want to see socks on feet. Nor do I want to see sweaters on the upper torso!

Show me FUNNY! Make me LAUGH OUT LOUD. Better yet, make My Man LAUGH OUT LOUD because he is going to be the judge of this one!

The Stats:
"Show Me Your Knitting! Make me LAUGH OUT LOUD!"
Begins Monday, Oct 30, 2006 and ends Monday, Nov 13, 2006. *EDIT* I changed the deadline to Nov 13 to give ya'll another week! (there's also a change regarding the prize, scroll down to see )
Be nice, no nudity or vulgarity! (Not that I think any of you would do that, but you never know who might pop by!)
Email your photo/photos to me along with the name and description of your model knitting. I will then post it here for all to see.
Surprise us all!
Show us your originality and sense of humor!

The Prize:
For this contest I have selected something that I use all of the time! The Calendar! This is really something that you will use a lot. I enjoy mine because it's chock full of stitch patterns and it's compact....and, it's a calendar! What more can a knitter ask for?! LOL, that was a loaded question, a knitter can ask for LOTS more, but ya ain't gonna get it here LOL!
*EDIT* I decided that since I've changed the deadline to Nov 13 that I'm going to add another prize, too....I'm just not telling what it is until next week

Ready, set.....Show Me Your Knitting! Make me LAUGH OUT LOUD!
