I’m in the mood for a contest…how about you? I’m sooooo happy to be finished this order that I think it’s time to give away a bit of free yarn! I don’t know of a better way to celebrate than to have a contest!! Yay free yarn!!!! Let’s pass on the happy feeling.

All you have to do is guess how much yarn is in that pile! Only one guess per person please and the first who gets it right will win – if we get multiple guesses that are the same I may do more than one winner but for now, the first to get the right answer will be the winner! What do you get? Easy – yarn! LOL And in any colourway you want…simple! Guess away!

If you want to view another photo of the yarn or this photo a little larger, please visit my Flickr album by clicking here.

I suck at this type of stuff, but I am a sucker for free yarn! So I will take a whack at this and say there are 144 skeins. I was going to be all scientific and try counting, because it looked like a pyramid at first, but then it seemed like there was more hiding on the chair behind the table.

27 January 2008at1pmShould I guess here? I’ll guess 250.

27 January 2008at1pmAll the yarn is pictured right here on the table and thanks Kim – this is the place to guess!

27 January 2008at1pmI’m going to guess 170.

27 January 2008at3pmIt’s sooo pretty! I’m guessing 150 skeins @ 67,500 yards total?? Wow that’s a lot of yarn.

27 January 2008at3pmI am most likely going a little (or a lot!) over but how about an even 500 skeins.

27 January 2008at3pm150 skeins @ 67500 yds. That picture makes me drool 🙂

27 January 2008at3pmHmmm… I’m guessing 190? Lovely pile of goodness 🙂

30 January 2008at3pmMy nerdy calculations yielded 130, but I don’t know how much I trust it.
