Please Excuse the Boneheaded Moderator

UPDATE:

Here are the guesses up to this point.

Amy - 142 - be sure to stop by her blog, it's supper cute- love those stitch markers, Amy!
Moraie- a staggering 270 (sets the bar high, that one!) - guessing all the way from the great state of Minnesota- good luck on the sock wars!
Sonya - and even 100- Sonya has the unfair advantage of knowing how poorly I focus on the task at hand.
Stariel- 80- All the way from Boston, ladies! Also a sock wars combatant, who evidently is engaging in hand-to-hand (or foot-to-foot) combat!

I am going to extend the deadline. You now have until the 5th of October to get your guesses in and start your washcloths! You still have until the 31st to finish your last stitch.

So, some clarification on the Ball Band Wash Cloth Contest

Categories are:

1. The person (not a HT employee) who knits the greatest number of washcloths in the month of October.

2. The person (not a HT employee) who takes the most creative, aesthetically pleasing, etc. photograph of their washcloth (which may or may not have been knit in Oct.)

3. The person (not a HT employee) who guesses the correct number of washcloths that will be knit by HT employees in the month of October.

4. Special Jennifer Catagory: The person (who is Jen, the owner of Hilltop) who knits the washcloth that best matches Jen's kitchen. (It's good to be the boss!)

Knit-off challenges are to be set up between any two knitters. You may challenge a HT Employee or another knitter, you agree on the terms, (pattern, length of knitting time, reward for winner, etc.) and we will document it on the blog.

OK, so sign yourself up, leave a comment (now that you can!) with

--First Name

--Last Initial

--OR Blogging Identity

--your URL if you have one

--Your Guess as to how many washcloths the HT staff will knit in Oct.

You may participate in all or just one way.

I will post ***prizes*** as soon as I have them!

May we add one more prize category...just because we can?

How about a prize for the person who knits a washcloth that most resembles their kitchen? Yes, this is similar to most creative photograph. Can it be an HT employee too?

Yes, Jen, we can add that catagory just for you.

Good luck!

I am also still in sockwars. And as for 270, for some reason I thought you guys would knit 3 a day each.
