Let the Games Begin!

The time for the Shawl Pin Shawl MKAL Hunter Games is upon us!  Since some people are new to MKALs, I thought a quick blog on how the games work is in order.

I’ll post a clue, either images, words, or both, with a set time limit in the Shawl Pin Shawl MKAL thread and eligible participants have that set time period in which to Ravelry message me their answer.

For instance, you may see something like this:

Puddles game clue sample

and your challenge is to come up with an answer that includes reference to each and every aspect.

The correct answer for this sample clue is:

Puddles, the Great Dane, Lindsay’s knit companion.

Just “Great Dane” or just “Knit Companion” would be partial answers & not enough to get you into the random draw.  You need to include each aspect of the image.  A funny aside, yes, I was actually named after Lindsay Wagner in those first moments when the doctors who said to expect a boy turned out to be mistaken.

Or you may see a clue like this:

The name and facebook URL for Lindsay’s knitting companion.

The correct answer for this sample clue is:

Puddles, the Great Dane – https://www.facebook.com/PuddlesTheGreatDane

*The correct answer in this case was found in the header of the “Knitting with pets” thread in the Knit Eco Chic group.*

Once you think you have the full answer, drop me a Ravelry message with your guess before the time limit is up.  I will write you back when I receive your guess and let you know if you are correct, partially correct, or incorrect.  You may resubmit as many times as you want within the time frame! (But please wait until I respond before submitting a second guess.)  Please do not post your answer in the thread as it gives it away to everyone.

All correct answers will be entered into a random draw & the winner will win one of the physical prizes listed in the first post.

If it happens that my mad clue creation skills are so far out of the box that nobody can guess what I intended and the time period elapses, I will post a hint to the bottom of the clue and apply a new time limit.  This will continue until at least 2 eligible participants are correct!

So are you ready to get started?  Find the first clue posted here!

Eligible participants are those who have purchased Shawl Pin Shawl pattern (this includes those who received a Ravelry “gifted” pattern, but not those who violate copyright and are using a “shared” copy), and have a project linked to the Shawl Pin Shawl pattern page.  If you are interested in participating, it isn’t too late to join!  Just purchase a Shawl Pin Shawl pattern on Ravelry and link up your project page to the pattern page.
