It's Chock Full o'Contesty Goodness

Hey kids! Do you know what time it is? It's time for a contest!

In honor of Halloween, we do hereby announce the terribly cleverly named:

You Knit What?? Halloween Contest!

Halloween showcases all sorts of scary things, we showcase all sorts of scary things, it seems a perfect fit!

Here's the deal: We want you to send us a picture of the ugliest thing you've ever knit... that's it. Pretty simple right? Well, here's the catch. (Oh, come on. You knew there was a catch.) You can't just lay that bad boy out on the carpet, snap a pic and expect to win. You have to model that fug.

We're not asking you to run out and knit something ugly in a week. What we want is something you've knitted that's gone horribly wrong. Or something you've designed and knit that just didn't turn out the way you thought it would. Now, if you want to knit something ugly in a week, have at it, but... I guess it's all in how much you want that grand prize.

So them's the rules. You knit it, you wear it. If you don't want your face splashed all over the internet as Queen or King of Knitted Fug, don't enter. (Or convince a friend to model it, whatever. It'll be our little secret.)

The Grand Prize: A write up on YKW?? and an official YKW?? totebag stuffed with sock knitting goodness generously donated by Simply Socks Yarn Company.

Here's the fine print:

Submit contest entries to ykwhalloween[at]gmail[dot]com. Contest entries must be received between 12:00am CDT 17 October 2005 and 11:59pm CDT 21 October 2005. Entries received before or after the cutoffs will not be accepted. Pictures must be in .JPG or .GIF format. Size doesn't matter... but we all know bigger is better. ;) Winner will be announced on You Knit What?? on Halloween.

Good luck and good fug.
