Contest: Match Me Up

Posted in Contests at 8:00 am by Jennie

Another silly contest from silly-o me. As the title says, this is a matching game. I give you 10 sock yarn images, you guess who makes them. Don’t worry, I’m not that hard on ya, making you do tons of searching, I’m gonna provide a “word bank” 🙂

Here goes:

1. 1 2. 2 3. 3

4. 4 5. 5 6. 6

7. 7 8. 8 9. 9

10. 10

Word Bank:

  • Lorna’s Laces
  • Fleece Artist
  • Cherry Tree Hill
  • Claudia Hand Painted Yarns
  • Socks That Rock
  • Koigu
  • Yarn Pirate

As you’ll notice, there are fewer choices than images, that’s because a few will have the same answer. So submit a comment with which yarns you think goes with which answer. Just to make this clear, submit something like. 1. Trekking 2.Opal 3. Brown Sheep 4. etc…

Whoever gets them all correct will win some fun sock yarn. You’ll get to choose from Lorna’s Laces, Koigu, or Fleece Artist. If no one get them all correct the person with the most correct with be the winner. If there are multiple winners, I will do a random drawing. And if no one gets any right…you guessed it…random drawing from all the comments. Hmm I hope that’s all explained correctly.

Okay, you have until 11:59pm Friday (6/1/07) night to post your answers. And just for sneaky purposes, because I’m a kinda sneaky person…if you want to keep your answers a secret just send me an e-mail via the send me a message page (unless you already have my e-mail 😉 than use my e-mail) with your answers and just post something random in the comments section so that when I go back, I can post your answers on your comment so people can see what you thought which was what.

Okay, wow, this is some novel. I hope I covered everything, and if something doesn’t add up, let me know. If I’ve made things confusing, I’m very sorry, I tend to go on and on. Oh and sorry about the crappy pics, I was using a different camera and couldn’t seem to work the sharp focus at all. 😦

GOOD LUCK! Have tons of FUN!

    Wow! Great contest. How do you compare Koigu with Claudia’s Hand Painted? I have used lots of Lorna’s Laces and Cherry Tree Hill.I just bought some fingering Schafer that is beautiful but I keep coming back to wanting Claudia because of its twist and Koigu. Can you please compare those two??? Thank you! Lauren http://indianhillmediaworks.typepad.com/yarntalk/
