It's the ABC-along "I" Contest!

Eight letters into the ABC-along, it would seem many knitters are suffering from spring blahs. It's time for a contest to keep things interesting for letter nine (I).

The average abecedary entry for the letter "I" tends to be rather uninspired, if not downright insipid. To provide incentive for ingenuity, I'm offering prizes for the three best "I" entries in the ABC-along, as announced on March 1.

The prize for first place is two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in colorway Iris Garden. The prizes for second place and third place are Clover I-cord makers with two interchangeable plates. Prizes will be mailed to the finalists.

First prize   Second and third prizes

To enter the "I" Contest:
  1. Post your ABC-along "I" photoessay on your blog between April 23 and May 6. Photo(s) must be your own work, naturally.

  2. Send an email to abcalong [at] gmail [dot] com by May 6 indicating your interest in participating in the contest and listing your blog name and the permalink of your entry.

Finalists will be chosen in two steps:
  1. Anne and I will select three finalists.

  2. ABC-alongers will vote for their favorite among the finalists. The finalist with the most votes will win first place, the finalist with the second number of votes will win second place, and the finalist with the third number of votes will win third place.

Eligibility: The ABC-along "I" Contest is open to participants in the ABC-along. Anne and I are not eligible for prizes, of course.

That's all there is to it. So get busy with those "I" posts. Good luck to all!

I've been thinking about "I"s all week and it's a tough one! But now I've got some extra incentive . . .
