Okay, I’ve never had a contest on my blog before.  And this isn’t going to be strictly random;  you have to work at this, though I’ll edit the Decisions post to give a few clues.

Whoever guesses both which pattern and which yarn I’ve decided upon for my travel knitting by 8pm Pacific time Thursday,  August 7th 2008 gets 1 bar of handmade soap and a set of my stitchmarkers…..please post your response in the comments on THIS post.

I think I’ve made a rational decision based on my goals and the needs of the chosen pattern (interesting pattern that isn’t hard to memorize/ ‘see’ what comes next, yarn that suits in terms of colorway, yardage, twist, etc).

If more than one person guesses correctly, I’ll do the name draw from a hat thing.

If no one guesses correctly…hmm.  I’ll figure something out.  Maybe one prize for the correct pattern, drawn from everyone who guesses correctly, and one for the chosen yarn…..

We leave early on the morning of the 8th…..hopefully by Aug 25th (day after we return) I’ll actually have a finished pair of socks!

    I love the Rivendell pattern and I think it would look fantastic in the Scouts Swag yarn. Looks like it would give really good definition.

    (I wasn’t sure where this was to go, so I put it here too… 🙂 )

    I’m guessing Bayerische in the Beach glass yarn, as I’ve made one of my Bayerische socks already and it took all but about 3 yards of the skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Socks. And I wear the same size sock.

    I’m guessing Bayerische in the Woolen Rabbit.

    Looks like the pattern will be easy to remember and the blue would be easy to see the stitches as the lighting may not be great while traveling.

    Have Fun!
