So, despite the fact that Amazon is thinking of building a warehouse next to my house, I order so many books from them, I still managed to mess up a recent order and ended up with not one, but two copies of a new book. Now, I could send it back to Amazon, confessing my stupidity. But, hey, that's no fun! So let's have a contest. Because it's a pretty cool book and I think there might be somebody out there who might be thrilled to get it.
Carol Sulcoski's Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns. So, who's in here? Well, Nancy Bush, Ann Budd, Veronik Avery, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts, and Charlene Schurch each have a pattern in here. And there are sixteen other designers, including Carol herself. But the real usefulness of the book comes from Carol's discussion of hand-painted yarns and how you can best exploit the beauty of the various types of yarns...types that she divides into three classes - Nearly Solids, Wild Multis and Muted Multis. It's a great book...and it might be yours! All you have to do is one simple thing.
Tell me how many buttons are in my button box. The number closest to the real number wins the book. Easy, right? I'll even give you some pictures:
And some hints -
Not everything in the box is a button.
This is a button box I started recently, not one that my mom had.
The box is not quite 4 inches deep.
Most of the buttons are on their cards but there are some loose ones at the bottom of the box.
Go to it!
Ooooh, edit! Edit! I forgot to say...let's let this contest run until next Monday, the 18th. At 5 p.m. EST.
Jeesh. I think I'd better read up on "How To Run A Contest."
