New Biggest Loser Contest
||The Biggest Loser
Expires Feb 28 2014
Lighten up and have a laugh! Share your most embarrassing projects, disasters & crafting shame.
Does the thought of that disastrous project weigh you down, are you embarrassed of the unsightly pile of UFOs, or the boyfriend sweater that didn't make him 'put a ring on it'? Remember all those garments that time forgot (but photos and friends didn't)?
It's time to share - No Pain - No Gain! Post photos of the ugly truth on Ravelry and/or the elann Project Gallery and tell us your tales of woe (in 50 words or less). After we finish laughing (with you), readers on both elann and Ravelry will vote on their favorites to pick the Biggest Losers! (Voting is built into the elann Project Gallery, and we will set up a poll on Ravelry after the entries are all in).
To ease our Winners' shame and help them on the path to crafting success, we will send each winner a 'Kit for Success': a free Cascading Vines kit that includes 8 balls of Knit One Crochet Too Paintbox in an available colorway of his/her choice. One winner will be chosen from entries to Ravelry and one winner will be chosen from entries to the elann project gallery. Post to both places and post as many entries as you wish!
The contest closes on February 28th, 2014, and our Biggest Losers will be crowned on March 8th, 2014. Voting will remain open until March 7th at midnight. We can't wait to hear your stories, and who knows, we may even confess to some spectacular disasters of our own (though, of course, we elannites won't be competing for your prizes. )
