Another contest

So my flight over to London was so fantastic (I was shocked to discover that I’d been upgraded to business class and could sip sparkling wine before take-off) that I tweeted I would run another contest. Here we go!

The rules:

  1. One of the people on this webpage is my husband. Guess which one. (This should be amusing.)
  2. You can submit up to three guesses. One by commenting on this blog post, one by following me on Twitter and tweeting your guess to me, and one by “liking” my Facebook page and commenting on the contest post there.
  3. Each incorrect guess counts as one entry.
  4. Each correct guess counts as two entries (so you double your chances if you are right).
  5. Contest ends at noon California time, Monday, 11 July 2011.
  6. I will tally up all the entries and pick a random winner using a random number generator.
  7. I may or may not reveal the correct answer. 🙂

The prize is a coveted Knit Nation bag with a mystery skein (or two?) of sock yarn inside:
