Hi Pam,

in the interests of fairness, contest entrants are not allowed to vote for their own projects. As we are offering 5 prizes, we do encourage you to vote for your favorite project from among the other entries.

I just voted and I ran out of votes! There are so many beautiful projects and I know there are even more that haven't been posted. Good luck, everyone and thanks to elann for having this contest. I love Highland Wool, and it's great to see what people have made with it.

Thank you Angela for the list. It makes it soooo much easier to veiw all the contestants. I'm new to the website, a fellow knitter turned me on to it about a year ago, and I must say I Love it. Love the Highland Wool, soooo many colors to choose from I had to order the shade card. I've never had a stash of yarn before, but I do now
Good luck to everyone,
Linda

HI Della, I have found that you can vote for multiple projects, but can only vote once for any one.
I have voted for several. After all, there are five prizes.
Happy knitting, Jamie

Bri, are you entering your Mondo Cable cardigan in the Boysenberry HW? I think you have to go in and edit the project and make sure you click on the box that says you want it entered in the contest. I hope you do that, since I want to vote for it!

Hi Bri,

Sandra is correct, you can now go into your project (and all the projects you've submitted to our gallery in the past), and edit the details. If the project is using our Highland Wool, you can enter it into the contest. This time, though, I've edited the project so it's in the contest so that I could also merge the close-up of the collar and the full picture with details into one project listing. The link has been added to the list above.

It's there now. Do you have bigger pictures, Bri? I can't see it very well.

Hi Eileen, Your projects are really lovely. Love the mittens and the stocking, who can't like it! Sorry you posted so late. I didn't get back on computer last night, so missed them! It's a shame there were not more entries, but I enjoyed looking at them all and did a fair amount of voting!
