I know that Bernadette, PLY’s photographer and my very best friend, is catch-your-breath-fall-down gorgeous (not to mention talented). It’s also true that anything, absolutely anything, would look beautiful on her. But given all of that, the Elektron scarf, by Kristy Howell from issue #4, really is stunning.
Well guess what I have in my hot little hand? Yep, enough of that exact fiber from Spunky Eclectic’s in gold digger — to spin and knit your very own Elektron. Would you like it? You would? I thought so. I feel like I know you so well. And you know me right? You know that I’d like to give it to you. All of you. But since I have just enough for one project, I’ve got an idea.
I need something from you. I’m collecting spinning snapshots for a very special project in our next issue — the community issue. I need lots. Lots and lots. Like hundreds! So if you send me a digital snapshot of yourself or a friend/friends spinning (please make the subject of the e-mail snapshot) and then leave a comment on the blog saying you sent it and that you’re okay with us publishing it — you’ll be entered in our random drawing!
Don’t worry about it being the best shot ever, it’ll be very very small so nobody will notice if your yarn isn’t even or if you don’t have your good bra on. However, I do need it to be of people spinning!
Okay? Sound good? Let’s do it!
Step 1. send a photo of yourself spinning to Jacey (with snapshot as the subject of your email).
Step 2. comment on this blog post that you sent me the snapshot.
Step 3. On Friday, July 11th, I’ll announce the winner and ship out the fiber!
