Quickie Contest!

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 9:16 pm

I am part of the Summer of Socks, albeit a poor representative since I have knit a grand total of 2.3 socks since the beginning of the summer, but we’re not going there. In order to feel I am a true Summer of Socks participant I’m planning to enter the “Socks on Vacation” contest. However, I’m having a little contest to get you to choose which photo I should enter. Below are the possibilities, the judging for the contest will be popular choice so think about what the masses will like. Leave me a comment about which one you think I should enter and you will be entered to win a fabulous prize!

#1 Sock with Siegfried and Roy: Ok not actually with them, but with me and a cardboard cut-out of the fabulous duo and one of their stars (also cardboard). Taken outside Siegfried and Roy’s Secret Garden.

#2 Sock and the Bellagio Fountains: If water can dance in a desert, who says a half knitted sock can’t watch?

#3 Sock with cool Cirque guy: He’s one of the character ushers at the Cirque du Soleil show KA. It was amazing, sock made a new friend.

#4 Sock winning at the slots: Notice that the machine shows a 120 credit win. Wouldn’t it be cool if it had been dollars rather than pennies?

Let me know which you think has the best shot, but hurry. Entries are due Wednesday August 22 by 10 pm so the voting here will close at noon eastern time on the 22nd. Remember, you opinion counts… and could win you a prize!


  1. My vote is for #3!

  2. I say #1. And I don’t get to vote in the final contest, so I’m not giving you an unfair advantage by saying that. 😉

  10. I like the Bellagio fountains (#2). My dad and I had a good time there. We’d always stop and enjoy the show everytime we walked by it.
