I’ve been searching for a contest with just the right amount of ridiculousness and opportunity for cheating in order to give away the afghan I’m working on. I’m not very far along on it (it’s been vexing me), but I have enough now for you to get the general gist of where it’s going and what colors it will be.
Here’s what’s done so far:
And here’s an upclose of what’s going on with the stitches:
I have another of the multicolored stripes done and am working on another solid stripe. I’m out of most of my multicolored yarn (which was the point of the afghan, so hurray!), so I’m thinking it’s just going to be a three stripe afghan.
The contest is to identify the man from this picture of my mom:
Here he is just him:
Here’s the catch:
My mom and dad have it narrowed down to two people it could possibly be. My mom thinks it’s one person, my dad thinks it’s another. But even I don’t know for sure.
Here’s a hint:
If it’s the person my mom thinks it is, he’s famous enough that you’ve heard his name, I guarantee. If it’s the person my dad thinks it is, he’s been in a Bugs Bunny cartoon and played the person my mom thinks it is (I hope that doesn’t make it too easy).
Here’s the rules:
The first person to guess correctly wins–and you must be able to back up your claim (So, I guess you could guess wrong, but still win if your proof seems the most plausible). Don’t guess if you don’t want to win, because it’s not going to be an afghan to everyone’s tastes, and it will break my heart if you know the answer but are all like “Hell no, don’t send that thing to me!”. And you must be willing to send me your name and a UPS-able address. So, there’s that.
Okay, good luck.
