Yes, it’s time to face the music.
And While we’re facing it, lets have a stash flash. It was making Linus a bit wary, as he thought it could be hostile, nevering having seen it all gathered together before.
Most Interesting goes to….
Elaine who said, “I was just going in for a random guess, but then I saw the last post - I like that idea choosing a year of significance.88.19 miles of yarn. My goodness, that's roughly the distance from NY to Philadelphia a thought to ponder!”
Until that point I hadn’t really thought about the distance in terms of driving from point A to point B. I was envisioning walking laps, why should it make sense, we're talking about yarn in miles?
The Funniest goes to…
Kitten With a Whiplash, who said ”Hi, I'm going to guess 54.25 miles. I tried just once to catalog my yarn. Never again. I swear it multiplied, flew around room, disappeared and reappeared with total abandon, never allowing me an accurate count. When I lost the paper I'd written all my notes on, I just gave up. I came here from WiKnit's contest blog, and will post to mine”
I had tears of laughter imagining the yarn flying around the room with gogels and a helmet in a fighter plane.
The Most Ridiculous goes to…
Catiebell, who said “I can't even begin to figure it out mathematically, so I'm just going to pull a number out of the air - 41.9 miles of yarn. Where do you keep that much yarn?”
Ridiculous because it’s so small. I had that much before I became a sock knitter, and we all know that the sock yarn piles up deceivingly fast.
And finally, the grand prize winner, the person who came the closest without going over is
Rachel O, who said “65.04, a nice round number. I have to go figure that out mine now.”
The actual count is 65.1. So Rachel O you have your choice of either
· Socks That Rock: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock – Lightweight (Mill End) Dixie Chicks
· Cherry Tree Hill Suri Laceweight Wild Cherry
· Araucania Ranco Multy 318 Hot Pink
