It's That Competition Time Of Year

Of course, the implication is that I do something at this time every year, but having missed the occasion for the past 2 years, I thought I'd commemorate both the occasions and the remembering of said occasions this year, at the same time.
wahey - she remembered!
The occasions?  Both my Ravelversary (31st Jan) and my Blogoversary (4th February).  Or, as I'm bang-slap in the middle of them at the moment, I shall call it my Ravelblogoversary.
I can see this catching on...
So, what's the deal, I hear you ask.  Or I do in my head, which is enough for me to write a sentence or two about it.

The deal is this, dear blogowers (that's 'blog followers' to those not aware of the entry in the RedScot Dictionary of Made-Up Words OUP 2018): I'm offering a complete set of my 'to buy' patterns to the winner of the competition.  That's 9 patterns to the worth of... quite a lot.  My arithmetic skills are currently off partying somewhere.  Probably with my calculator.
And don't worry if you're not a member of Ravelry!  Anyone can see them if you click on this LINK and all I need is an email address so I can send the winner the PDF collection.  If you ARE a member of Ravelry, however, I can send you the patterns there and you will be able to keep them in the online library!

But, HOW to win them, I hear you ask. Again. Because I've not been dithering with picture placement at all.  Oh no.  Well, it's simple really. All I need to know is what you think my favourite colour is.  And don't think checking on my Rav profile will help, as I've unhelpfully removed any mention of my preferred palette choice.  

But because I'm actually really a helpful person at heart, I'll give you a heads-up and let you know you have a choice of 3 favourite colours - so you have 3 times the chance of guessing one of them.  (And I should be clearer - give me one colour - if it's one of my 3 favourite colours, then you're in with a chance!)  You don't need to be specific - I'm not looking for a Crayola-perfect colour name, just the general colour umbrella will be sufficient!

All you need to do is write a comment here on the blog telling me what you think the answer is. The winning entries who mention any of the 3 colours will be put into a computer generator thingy (technical wordage notwithstanding) and the winner will be announced after the end of the competition.  

(If blogger is playing silly-bluggers, then hop over to THIS THREAD on Ravelry and let me know what you think the answer might be!  Not a member of Rav and blogger playing silly-bluggers?  Click on the contact me on the profile and send a message.  I'll have that open for the duration.)

The closing date?  February 14th at a minute to midnight CET.  I may as well have something to look forward to on Valentine's Day, eh?

Happy guessing!

Well, even though I already own all of the patterns I will still guess! Me, competitive much, why no?? LOL Actually if I do win please choose someone else since that would only be fair!

Anyway, here are my guesses:

1. Red (as in Fraggle red!)
2. Blue (as in the Blue of the Scottish flag)
3. Lavender (as in the Heather of Scotland!)

Mwah back! I've made things clearer in the post (me? Unclear?!!) - I'll take your first choice, if that's okay, Mary! :D

Heather Thursday, 2 February 2012 at 23:12:00 GMT  

I think I have most of the patterns, so if I win I'll share with someone else! I'll buck the trend and say PURPLE!

Can I guess? :)

Hah! Sorry Leetle Seester - accusations of nepotism would be flying! ;-)

It's gotta be red!

Mpindstrup Friday, 3 February 2012 at 18:27:00 GMT  

And if green isn't one of your colours it should be! You look great in it!

Kathryn Saturday, 4 February 2012 at 03:58:00 GMT  

Your samples have a lot of red/russet tones, and your hair is red, so I'll venture to guess red as well!

I'm going to go with green, because I know that has to be a color that looks stunning on you! Mwah!

Patti Saturday, 4 February 2012 at 19:21:00 GMT  

Looking over your patterns you do use red/berry, yellows, purples, and blues quite often. Mostly I see red tones, so I have to go with RED. I do love your patterns and your blog.
