I promised y'all a contest, didn't I?

Being included in this month's edition of Yarnival seems like as good a reason as any to have a contest. However, it's with a bit of trepidation that I embark on this giveaway. You see, the winner of my first contest never came forward to claim the prize, despite several attempts at contact on my part. It made me sad, really. In the interest of putting all of that behind me, though, I'm willing to give it another go.

Anyway, when I made my public plea for the person who submitted my post to Yarnival to come forward, I had some idea of sending that person a bit of yarn as a way to say thank you. Well, that person remains anonymous, and yet, I still want to give yarn away. Sock yarn. This yarn, specifically.

Yarn makes me happy.

There are two 50 gram balls of Knit Picks Essential in Grass, a lovely spring-like green. Next is a 100 gram ball of Regia Strato in the Circus colorway (#5738). Last is a 4 ounce skein of Lisa Souza Sock! in the Mars Quake colorway (this one is particularly hard for me to give up). Plus, the prize package may include a few extra goodies.

How to Enter

It's simple. Just leave a comment on this post stating, "I'm Spartacus!" Also acceptable is, "No, I'm Spartacus!" or any variant thereof. Anyone worldwide is welcome to enter, but only one entry per person, please. The contest will remain open until noon (Central Standard Time) this Friday, February 23rd. On Friday afternoon, I'll pick a winner at random.

I'm the real Spartacus! Those other commenters are all imposters! See how they have all unwittingly used their real names?

Hey dude, I'm Spartacus. A recent television show had children saying, "I'm fartacus". Very juvenile, so of course my husband laughed and the reference to Spartacus was completely lost on my children. Poor unloved sock yarn!

*flashes a valid driver's license*

Yup, they named me SPARTACUS. And only the lovliest of yarns can remove the blight it has caused in my life...female and named SPARTACUS. Do you have ANY idea what it was like as pre-teen? Flat chested with man thighs?! *rolls eyes* *shudders*

I need the yarn...I AM SPARTACUS.

*sigh*

You know what's funny? After my dreadful freshman year in college I worked at American Eagle Outfitters, this was pre-hoochie clothes. Anyway, my co-worker Mike LastNameForgotten actually called me Spartacus! No lie! So impostors, bah, I say, bah! I am Spartacus! Just ask Mike What'sHisName. And me. Because I couldn't make this stuff up! Ok, I could, but I'm not. :)
