Caption Contest: Give It Your Best Shot!

Aug 31, 2012

We have winners! Here they are:

1. MichelePin: "I wish she would hurry up and finish the pink pillow she promised me when I was a puppy!"
2. KnitQuip: "The Puppy Perils of dropping your skein."
3. Gwennse: "Ugh! After doing fourteen inches of stockinette for a sample sweater, I'm PUPPED!"

I've sent an email to each of your Knitting Daily usernames.

Congratulations!


++++++++++++

You know the New Yorker's back page—where they give you a cartoon and you write in with a caption? Some are funny, some are curious, some are just plain silly, but it just goes to show the power images have to spark our imaginations.

Well, we can't let the New Yorker have all the fun! Here's a picture of my dog Poppy and some yarn. Leave your caption in the comment section below by Monday September 4, 2012, 11:59 PM, and you could be randomly selected to win a Knitting Daily magazine prize pack! We have three prizes so your chances are good!

If you have any questions, consult the Knitting Daily Contest Rules page.

Good luck and I can't wait to see your captions!

Cheers,
