New Fabulout Felines yarns are on the way. You can win a skein!

Take a good look at this pussycat. Her name is Sandi Pandi Smooch Pooch.

I'd love you to take a guess where she comes from. The person who guesses the closest will win a skein of her gorgeous Fabulous Felines yarn created by Iris Schreier of Artyarns. But even if you don't get it exactly right, you can win a prize!

Here's how it will work. From now until Friday, I'm asking people to put their guess up on this blog. If someone guesses the country correctly, I'll let you know. That means your assignment is now to guess where in that country. If someone guesses the state/province/territory correctly, I'll let you know that, too. And then your job is to guess what city/town/village. We'll keep going an going until we get it right. If people are really good guessers, we might have to get right down to the street.

No cheating!

The person who guesses the closest will receive a free skein of Sandi Pandi's color.

Everyone who guesses correctly will win a Yarnmarket bag. It's a cloth bag with our logo and you can use it for carting projects around or just for your grocery shopping.

So...get it? One person will get a skein of the yarn. Everyone else who correctly guesses the country/territory/city/etc. (to however granular we can become) will win a Yarnmarket bag.

I'll start off by guessing Earth. It's up to the next person to guess the country.

Deborah Knight said...

Wow! That was quick! Kimberly wins a bag for guessing Canada!

Let's try for the province now.

(Kimberly -- send me your address at deborah at yarnmarket dot com)

Lyn said...

I think she's from Ontario.

Being that I'm from the States and know practically nothing about Canada...(isn't that sad?) I'll say Toronto bc I have cousins who live there!

Carol_M said...

I'll say Manitoba.

Vancouver, British Columbia

Vanessa said...

She's is chez chic! So I guess Quebec

Deborah Knight said...

Lyn was correct about Ontario. (But Vanessa is correct...she's chez chic pour une chat!)

Okay...now guess the city. I haven't yet seen it.

Lyn -- please email me at deborah at yarnmarket dot com with your address so I can send you a bag!

Vanessa said...

London??

Shawn said...

How about Kitchener (wouldn't that be fitting?) LOL

Deborah Knight said...

Boy, are you ever getting close! I can't believe how quickly, too.

Vanessa and Shawn...keep moving east along the 401. Head toward The Horizon.

Julia Ergane said...

Toronto?

Deborah Knight said...

Getting VERY close. It's a little bit east. Not a big city...

Shawn said...

Pickering?

Deborah Knight said...

You are so close I can't believe it!!!

If no one else guesses in 5 minutes I'll declare the contest closed and will announce the winners!

Shawn said...

Ajax?

Michelle said...

Windsor?

Shawn said...

Whitby?

Michelle said...

Went west...oops. Whitby?

Deborah Knight said...

Shawn got it! I do not believe this. I thought it would take a week but you're all so clever it took only a couple of hours!

Shawn, I'm sending you the yarn. Please email me your address.

And to Michelle, Julia, Vanessa, Kadyan, Carol, Kimberly and Anonymous (either one of you), I'd love to send you a bag just for playing along and giving me something to giggle about.

Please email me your postal addresses so I can put a bag into the mail for you.

I now declare this contest closed!

It's really easy to correctly guess that she's from Canada when the filename of the photo is SandiPandiCanadian.jpg. Just sayin'....
