It’s Mardi Gras season here in New Orleans. That’s a great excuse to have another contest for free yarn, right?! Let’s celebrate with the purple, green and gold since those are the traditional colors of Mardi Gras.
Post a photo to the HeartStrings FiberArts fan page on Facebook of any HeartStrings design you’ve made that incorporates any one, two, or even all three of these colors. Please also let us know the HeartStrings pattern name and any other details you’d like to share about your project.
Any Facebook fan can vote by clicking ‘like” beneath their favorite project photo(s). Feel free to leave comments, too, to encourage others to vote for your favorite(s).
Contest entries and voting will close at noon, Central Standard time (GMT-6) on Tuesday March 8. Winner will be the entry with the most “likes”. So the sooner you post your project and get the buzz going, the better the chance you have of people seeing it and voting. In case of a tie, a random drawing will be done of the top-voted entries.
Prize is 150g of DK weight machine washable Australian merino wool yarn (1 – 50g ball in each of the 3 colors: purple, green and gold, of course) — PLUS — assorted official New Orleans Mardi Gras beads.
This contest is open to all Facebook fans of HeartStrings FiberArts (to be a Fan, just click “Like” at the top of the HeartStrings FiberArts Facebook page if you have not already done so). Any fan can vote on as many contest photos as they wish. So gather up your friends to come on over the HeartStrings FiberArts, be a fan, and like your contest photo.
Let the contest begin and have fun!
Mix-matching colors in socks is just one idea of what you could do with the Mardi Gras yarn prize if you win the Mardi Gras Viewer’s Choice Contest. For example, here is a purple, green and gold adaptation of Vernal Equinox from The Sock Calendar.
