Sock Competition

Ok folks so here it is. My competition.

I am knitting a pair of socks for someone's birthday this month. You have to guess out of four options who, by leaving me a comment with your answer and name! If you post as an anonymous and there is no way for me to contact you please email me as well so I can get in contact if you win at mummykatt AT bigpond DOT com (changing caps to correct signs..and removing all spaces).

Here are your options

A) Me!! A girl has to spoil herself sometimes you know

B) My younger sister..Show her some wuv

C) DNLPF...Demelza might like some sockies..Christopher has a pair.

D) My neice. Adam's sister's little girl in Qld. Wee sockies.

So here is an example of how the message from you should look (and I am NOT using one of the real answers..Dont want to be seen as maybe tipping you lot off! lol).

Q) The Queen..It gets cold there in England

Ok. For a bonus..Tell EVERYONE you think might be interested. I have 1 prize for the winner (a name will be randomly drawn from the correct answers)..If I get enough entries I will pick a second name out and give another prize..so if you want a double chance get more people involved!

Piccie of prize will be supplied later once I get a good one. But believe me its a goodie! a skein of 4ply (sock weight) wool that would be perfect for a pair of socks or even something for a baby!

You all have until 20th of April to get your guess in!

    I think you should be (A)-ing some socks!! You have knitted lots of things for other people, and you should knit some socks for yourself - Sock it to ME!! so to speak!!!!!

  • At 10:34 pm, Blogger Karen said…

    I'm also going with

    A) Me!!

    Always a great idea to send yourself some birthday love!!! When I was single, I used to cheer myself up at Christmas by taking the money I would spend on a boyfriend if I had one, and buying something for myself. :)

    A) ME Doesn't everyone need a special Birthday present! :)

  • At 2:18 am, Blogger Dandy said…

    ok I'm also going with "A"...
    I think you need a pair of hand knit socks.. and since you never knit for yourself... what a great bday present for you!

  • At 5:56 am, Blogger Elizabeth said…

    I'm going with A) Me. Careful research shows that your birthday is in April. Even with time flying by at incredible speed, I know it is still April. (I'm still a bit surprised that March has ended).

    So, knit those socks for yourself!

  • At 6:00 am, Blogger noricum said…

    I'm going to have to agree with everyone else, and say (A). (I see your birthday is coming up, and fresh-knit socks are great!)

    PS: Dandy sent me.

  • At 9:43 am, Anonymous Adam said…

    I see that people are doing research....
    btw. everyone on the list has a birthday in April..

    But yes it is time she spent a little work on herself...

  • At 11:17 am, Blogger Kathy said…

    I;ll say "D". I like wee things for wee babes. It would be great fun to post and see. And Happy Birthday to you soon!

  • At 3:56 pm, Blogger Sharon said…

    Yes, I too am going with A

    You deserve them ;)

  • At 6:55 pm, Blogger Leeanne said…

    I want to say A but am going to go with B.

    B is my answer. You got my email addy.

  • At 7:43 pm, Anonymous Megor said…

    Leeann thinks I'm getting soxors!

    Can I vote? I say Demz.

    I forget which one she was, I think it's C. Demelza.

    I don't want to win anything BTW. I just thought Demz looked like she was missing out.

    I'm so bored.

  • At 10:15 pm, Blogger Bugsy said…

    I am going to say A as well because I remember a post not that long ago where you said you were going to use a particular yarn to make yourself a pair of socks. So my answer is

    A) You! Because it is about time you did something for yourself and a girl can never have enough birthday pressies.

  • At 3:17 pm, Blogger shazzy said…

    Ok I would like to think its u cause you need some and deserve something for u alone, but I would say C too, cause she deserves some too, cause raising babies is damn hard.
    Oh heck make both of u a pair lol.
    I need new socks too *hint hint* mwahahahahaha


  • At 3:20 pm, Blogger shazzy said…

    ooooops sorry my answer was meant to look like this hey

    C) DNLPF...Demelza might like some sockies..Christopher has a pair.

    *blush* Im soo not myself today

  • At 6:18 pm, Blogger Lynne said…

    A) Me! You! Cos it is your birthday on the 23rd and you need something for you not for anyone else! Because you're special (and that is without a capital SHPESH!)

  • At 7:17 pm, Blogger Cathy said…

    I'll jump on the band wagon with both feet and say *A*.

    A girl deserves warm feet for Winter and why not knit them for your very own birthday pressie.

    Sorry I'm late but the computer wasn't fired up over the weekend.


  • At 12:41 pm, Blogger Heide said…

    Hello there, Karen had a link on her page to your sock contest. I'm going to guess D. simply because wee socks are fun to make.

  • At 4:05 pm, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    B) My younger sister

    Just to be different!! I am increasing my chances of winning LOL. I do think you need to do a bit of knitting for yourself though!!

  • At 4:07 pm, Anonymous Jess said…

    Oh, that anon was me!! I blame the baby brain *blush*

  • At 4:28 pm, Blogger Jan said…

    I'll be in the minority too and say B because it's good to spread the sove, meaning handknit socks, around the family!

  • At 3:52 am, Blogger trek said…

    C) DNLPF...Demelza might like some sockies..Christopher has a pair.

  • At 8:30 am, Blogger Christine said…

    I think you should knit some socks for (B) your sister, to show her some wuv!

  • At 7:20 pm, Blogger fitknit said…

    I'm going to guess C.

    Love your blog - I feel like I've been following you around other blogs' comments pages, so it's nice to find you at your place;)

  • At 5:08 pm, Blogger amanda j said…

    Well, I hope it is (B), as I am someone's sister and a pair of handknitted socks would be one of the best presents I could get. However, I find it hard to imagine my brother making them for me. sigh.
