A Contest!

Now that nearly all of the packages have been received and many socks are already on the needles, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest to keep us entertained until the excitement of the April shipment.

We will start with an easy contest so that no one should have any excuse not to enter. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your best Hobbit name or Elf name. These have to be names of your own creation, not ones taken from the books.

You have until March 9th to enter. On March 10th we will randomly select a winner from among the entries.

The winner will win a free skein of yarn in one of our non-club Lord of the Rings inspired colorways!

The Designer's Perspective

Our designer, LoBug, has posted some information about how she came up with the first pattern on her blog here. There are pictures and spoilers, of course, so only click if you have received your package or don't mind ruining the surprise.

A Word about Spoilers

The first packages are beginning to arrive. Please remember that it will take a few weeks before everyone has received their packages, especially the international members. Therefore, please don't post any pictures or descriptions of what you received without first posting a Spoiler Warning or making sure that you are posting in a "Spoiler Thread". This goes for personal blogs, comments on this blog and comments in the Ravelry group. Also, please do not add your stash or project images to the Ravelry group until everyone has received their packages. Thank you!

If you would like to use this Spoiler graphic to warn people that you are going to be posting images/information about the package, please feel free to use it.
