You may remember that I was joint winner of a competition organised by Folksy back in January?
So much yarn, so little time.: Folksy Make the News...
When I told the sponsor what I would like for my prize, it was with today's competition in mind. So - now that my prize has arrived - it's your turn!
In true school-bazaar tradition, your mission is to guess the number of buttons in the jar!
You can have several attempts.
To enter, one way is to become a follower of my blog. Leave a comment with your guess, tell me you're a follower. If you're already a follower, that's great - that counts too of course!
You can have a second try by going to either my Folksy shop or my Etsy shop and then leaving me a comment here with your guess and your favourite item from my shop.
For a third and fourth try - buy something from one of my shops and leave the details in a comment with your guesses!
If more than one person guesses correctly I will give the prize to the first correct guess, so it might be worth your while checking what other people have guessed.
But what's the prize?
When I started selling my knits I was very naive. I had no idea that buying a pattern did not give me the right to sell the product of that pattern. When the light dawned, I had to remove a few things sharpish!
Your prize is Nellie (seen here doing her Marilyn Monroe impression), knitted from a commercial pattern and therefore no longer for sale in my shop.
This competition is open to anyone and everyone from wherever you happen to live - good luck! I will check the guesses in one week's time on Wednesday March 11th. If more than one person has guessed the correct number I will give the prize to the first correct guess. If nobody has the exact number I will give the prize to the nearest guess. If there are two nearest guesses (one higher, one lower) I will give to the higher guess.
And if there's any other quibble I haven't thought of, please let me know!
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED! I AM BUSILY COUNTING BUTTONS...
