My first-ever contest!

So, for those of you who have been reading along over the past few weeks, you will know that I am doing my damnedest to finish up my WIPs and to use up what I have.

Which is just a nice way of saying "no more crap enters this house until I get rid of some of what I already have!!"

Progress was made ... I'm chugging away on the big orange baby blanket.

I sent this blanket off to Rebekah to donate to her animal shelter.
I sent this pile of baby sweaters to Circles to donate to Cradle to Crayons.

I whipped up a cute little notebook cover, using leftover fabric from my couch pillows, leftover interfacing from my two skirts, and leftover ribbon from my Sitcom Chic. (When the notebook is closed, those ribbons tie into a cute little bow...)

I started a new project using up more stuff in my crafty-bitch stash ...
(Full details, and more photos, to come when the project is finished the contest is over -- see below!)

So, feeling all high and mighty and proud of myself, I had the perfect blog post composted in my head about what a good girl I have been, and how I've been crafting from the stash and resisting the temptations to buy more.

And then, a voice from over the cubicle wall asks me "have you read Mason-Dixon today?"

Why no, I had not. Clicky-click on over ... to read this post.

Really, go click on over. Then come back. I'll wait.

So, it seems that my purging has all been in the interest of acquiring more fibery goodness.

So, I am now announcing my first ever blog contest!! (Otherwise known as "whoring for comments".)

Can you guess what my latest crafty project is, those pink and white polka-dotted things shown above?

Any guess, no matter how ludicrous, will be entered in the drawing for some fabulous prizes. How fabulous, you might ask?? Well, we'll have to wait until the Hefty bag arrives!! 'Cause, you know, the hubby is not going to be so pleased when an entire bag full of yarn show up on the doorstep. So, I'll need to let him know that some of it is already designated as yarny prize giveaways! Augmented by stuff from my own stash, too. (Any non-knitters out there, we'll find a suitable prize for you too!)

(Mafia, you are the only one who knows what those pink and white things are, so don't let the cat out of the bag!)

The contest will be open until next Tuesday at noon, east coast time. Leave a comment or send me an email (address in sidebar) with your NAME and BLOG ADDRESS or EMAIL ADDRESS. Be creative with your guesses!

220 Comments:

  • Congrats!! Hmm, let's see... Covers for "bar" style stools?? Or the tops of toadstools. Heh.

    By Blogger Chris, at 3:36 PM  

  • You're really cranking through so many things. I'm impressed.

    I'm guessing ends for home made knitting needles, or the two sides of a chip-wich.

    By Blogger Chris Q, at 4:09 PM  

  • They look clay-ey to me... fake cookies? coasters? I don't think I know, Danielle - do you have kids? this looks like a kid's craft project. :-)

    No prize necessary here (even if available!), just had to jump in so I can flaunt my nearly-non-existant blog too! ;-)

    And, oh, cool! Mason-Dixon said "FlyLady"! I'm a fan, but not a good follower lately. Sigh.

    By Anonymous Gurukarm, at 4:23 PM  

  • I can't be part of the contest? Damn.

    Then I can't guess decorative covers for your birth control box?

    No worries, I won't let the cat out o' the bag. The truth is out there. (I miss Scully - meow)

    By Blogger FemiKnitMafia, at 4:24 PM

    By Blogger Deb, at 4:57 PM

    so very exciting.

    i'll have to come back and guess. i'm not inspired to be clever right this minute (assuming i ever am)

    By Blogger maryse, at 5:32 PM  

  • At first I thought they were tops for homemade knitting needles but chris q guessed that so I'll have to go with my second guess: pasties for your new stripping act to earn more yarn money. Well, probably not.

  • I'm thinking jar tops. Made of ... sculpy clay?

    Jar tops. That's my guess, and I'm sticking with it.

    By Blogger Ruth, at 9:25 PM  

  • Oh goodie! I'm guessing these are Bowl Covers!

    By Blogger Bonne Marie, at 7:21 AM  

  • Hey, I'll help you feel cheap! OK, I would guess that the size of the project must be on the small side, as the white dot on the pink base looks like it has fingerprint grooves. I am guessing that you were comissioned to make some models for a remake of "Plan 9 from Outer Space." In keeping with the feel of the original movie, you are not going with Matrix-like special effects. The action in the movie will all be done with litte Lego people. What's shown in the picture are the UFOs for the movie. A vast improvement over the pie tin on a string, I'll say.

    By Anonymous Suzanne, at 7:27 AM  

  • They look like clay ... are you making your own Stitch Markers? Cute pokka dot retro stitch markers. Oh how cute!

    If I win, I want you to donate my winnings to a Senior Center in your area. A lot of seniors can't afford new yarn if they only have social security to live on. In fact, I'm suddenly inspired to start my own clean out program. Starting this Sunday!

    By Blogger Rhonda, at 9:26 AM  

  • hhmmmm, i'm going to say stitch markers too :) original, i know. but that looks like sculpey or fimo clay to me!

    By Blogger gleek, at 10:12 AM  

  • I am also going with knitting needle caps.

    By Blogger Mindy, at 10:24 AM  

  • hmm... definitely clay. They look like tasty m&m cookies.

    Based on the fingerprints, they look to be about 1.5-2" in diameter.

    I'd guess bottle or jar tops, but those are taken, so I'm going to go with Princess Toadstool* costume hats for barbie dolls.

    * Princess Toadstool was the female character in the Super Mario Brothers series.

    By Blogger Tiphanie, at 5:22 PM

    By Blogger RheLynn, at 8:52 PM  

  • hmmm, definately look like clay. Maybe some cute little beads for stitch markers?

    By Blogger Risë, at 8:41 AM  

  • My guess is something polymer clay - but it looks like someone already beat me to it :( buttons perhaps????

    By Blogger Red Dog Knits - Kristi and Otis, at 8:42 AM  

  • Beads?

    By Anonymous Jess, at 9:09 AM  

  • I'm thinking polymer clay beads for stitch markers.

    By Blogger trek, at 9:13 AM

  • Earmuff Covers?
    The world's first clay based thumbprint verification system? :~)

    Congrats on your knitting up your stash successfully!
    ((hugs))

    By Blogger KnitNana, at 10:17 AM  

  • Like so many others have said - definitely polymer clay something - beads or buttons or stitch markers perhaps. (But you know what it reminds me of is cake fondant. )

    By Anonymous Alley, at 12:33 PM  

  • Well they just might be Stitch markers not yet baked to the right size.
    OR they could be needle toppers...
    that is my choice and I am sticking to it:)

    By Anonymous Susanne, at 12:34 PM

    By Anonymous Scrake, at 12:46 PM  

  • At first I thought they looked like the most delicious Necco wafers ever, but I am really guessing that they are the tops for some hand-crafted knitting needles.

    By Blogger Kim, at 12:46 PM  

  • MY guess would be really cool buttons or button covers

    By Blogger Karen, at 12:47 PM  

  • I know, I know! A lawnmower!?! Am I right or am I right.

    Or maybe two super-chic Rhoombas?

    By Anonymous kmkat, at 12:49 PM

    By Blogger shirleyknits, at 12:49 PM  

  • I just found your blog, and I'm going to guess some nifty drawer pulls and cupboard handles.

    By Blogger Jenn, at 12:52 PM  

  • For the 30th time, buttons!

    By Blogger Carol, at 12:55 PM  

  • Chair cozy? You can never have enough cozies...

    Ok, maybe buttons is a more likely guess :)

    By Anonymous Maud, at 1:02 PM

    By Anonymous Kymm, at 1:19 PM  

  • Mushroom Cozies!

    By Blogger holidayknitter, at 1:19 PM  

  • ends for the knitting needles...you know,those things to keep your project from falling off the needles

    By Blogger genegrl, at 1:21 PM  

  • I'd say they look like buttons or stitch markers, judging by the finger/thumb print grooves. But perhaps a little large for all of the above... perhaps drawer pulls for a kid's room... or beads. Definitely made of Fimo or Sculpie or some such polymer clay.
    Though I do like the idea of pasties (very retro ones, by the look of it!)

    By Blogger loribird, at 1:24 PM  

  • They look too flat for knitting needle finials and based on the size of the finger prints on them, too big. I'm going to guess a pin cushion made out of modeling clay.

    By Anonymous Juliette in Portland, at 1:26 PM  

  • Jam jar lids - or iced buns!!!!!!!

    By Anonymous Evonne, at 1:33 PM  

  • Door knobs made from fimo clay?

    or drawer knobs I suppose!

    Or, coasters for under a glass?

    By Blogger Flan, at 1:33 PM  

  • I'm thinking that a spotted alien space craft landed in your front yard and, in the interest of keeping up the progress and cleaning up/clearing out, you've now converted the small ship into these cute polka dotted bowl shaped dishes to hold odds, ends and more of the unruly things laying around the house....

    Or they could be really heavy ear muffs....

    By Blogger Tina, at 1:39 PM  

  • Those look to me like they may be buttons made out of Fimo. Which reminds me I've got a big block of the stuff to use up.

    By Blogger Kristin, at 1:39 PM  

  • i'm sorry to guess the same as the rest, but buttons is the answer. maybe we should have some sort of craft-off if there's a tie?

    By Anonymous annie b., at 1:42 PM  

  • Paperweights? Mushrooms in which Smurfs will live? Centerpiece decorations? Coasters? Drawer pulls?

    By Blogger Megs, at 1:43 PM  

  • Kymm had the same idea I did - covers for the round retractable tape measures.

    But I like lawnmower, too. So I think I'm going to go with lamp. Definitely a lamp. Or a model of a 1958 Edsel. Am I close?

    By Anonymous Sarah, at 1:44 PM

    Cindy

    By Blogger Cindy, at 3:30 PM  

  • I recognize the polymer clay. So my reasonable guess is either knitting needle tops or buttons or beads. They'd probably be too heavy as pasties.

    By Blogger Meilynne, at 3:33 PM  

  • Man - I think all my guesses were taken. I was going to guess fake cookie, or clay, or buttons, or doorknobs. So, I'll go with earrings.

    By Blogger RandomRanter, at 3:35 PM  

  • I can tell they are polymer clay.... How many guesses do we get? I'm going with 3.
    1. Buttons for a fabulous felted bag.
    2. magnets
    3. Jar lid covers for baby food jars full of beads.

    By Anonymous Ruth Moline, at 3:51 PM  

  • The tops to knitted cupcakes!

    By Blogger littledevilworks, at 3:54 PM

    By Blogger Jena the yarn harpy, at 3:54 PM

    By Blogger Julie, at 5:48 PM  

  • I really have no idea but didn't want to miss out on a contest. They look like the top of toadstools to me but not sure what you would be making toadstools for...unless it is one of those loop-the-yarn-around-the-wire-on-top-of-the-toadstool-and-knit-something thingees. That I"m sure have a real name.

    By Blogger Kim in Oregon, at 5:54 PM  

  • I'm a posty h0r! Alright, those polka dotted things seem to have been made out of clay. Judging from the ridges that I assume come from fingers, they're about the size of half-dollars and may be too big for stitch markers, although they'd be cute ones! So I'm jumping on the band wagon and calling them buttons.

    Or future fridge magnets! I can't make up my mind.

    By Blogger Kit Is Knitting, at 5:54 PM

    Oh & congrats on destashing as well! I'm working on that too and well it's tough when there is so much tempting stuff out there!

    By Blogger Leah, at 6:01 PM

    By Anonymous Rebecca, at 9:15 PM  

  • Well, I'm pretty sure it's polymer clay and my first thought was buttons, since I make buttons out of polyclay. Seem a bit thick in the picture though. No real scale to go by. Damn you, macro lens! I guess I'll go with buttons.
    Yours is the second blog today that has mentioned being a comment whore. If I knew how, I'd make a button (electronic) and start a group. We could all post comments to each others' blogs to make us feel good. LOL. So it looks like the contest works, maybe I should try one......

  • I'm gonna guess a multipurpose kinda knitting tool - a book weight to keep your book open when you're knitting, and a place marker to help you visually look back at your pattern at the right spot. Whatever they are they are VERY cute!

  • I think that you are making polymer clay drop spindles. These are prospective whorls. You are powerless to resist the call of the spin.

  • I'm going to stray from the mainstream and guess they are going to be something for outside in your yard or garden...maybe toppers for your yard lights or citronelly Tikki candles, or stepping stones for your garden.

  • You'll probably get a lot more readers after Ann's link. I'm one and I love it here.

    I think...uh tops for round Altoid-type tins..if there is such a thing

  • I'm guessing buttons for the one zillionth time.

    (I came over from MDK, so I'm sure you're going to have a ton of readers on your hands!)

  • Well, I know that my niece would be ecstatic if those were the buttons for her Christmas sweater (I make the whole immediate fam a knitted item for Christmas). However, since you know neither myself or my niece, I doubt they're specifically for her. They do appear to be about the right size for small buttons so that's my guess. Buttons, and fun ones at that!

  • magnets?

    By Blogger ange, at 8:33 AM  

  • I think they are fancy covers for mason jars, because you are now into making your own Jams & Jellies.... Yes?

    By Blogger Nicole, at 9:25 AM  

  • I think they are hot 80's style earrings!

    By Anonymous Laura F., at 9:52 AM  

  • Buttons is my guess too. They sure are cute!

    By Blogger Jenn, at 9:57 AM  

  • Some sort of homage to Katamari Damacy for your altar.

  • Hmmm.... Definitely something from Sculpey or Fimo...a bit big in size...Coasters?

    By Blogger Nichole R., at 12:03 PM

    By Blogger Whitney, at 12:38 PM

    Uhmmm, or maybe buttons~

    By Blogger Paintin' Purls, at 1:15 PM  

  • Maybe centers for yo-yo flowers like the ones seen here: http://www.heatherbailey.typepad.com/

    If not, that would be a perfect craft supplies buster!

  • They are obviously negative molds for sunken polka dot mystery items. Aren't they?

    By Blogger Moze, at 1:46 PM  

  • I think they're clay fanciful m&m cookies that are loaded with magnets to stick them on the refrigerator. Or lids for craft-containment receptacles. Perhaps when they are attached to the bottom of the craft containment receptacle, they'll look like cupcakes.

    By Blogger Jamie Fritz, at 4:09 PM  

  • Hmmm, I believe theyre those neat-o jar lid covers that you make with polymer clay. Looks darling!

    By Anonymous Sophia, at 4:37 PM  

  • I'll go with drawer pulls.

    By Anonymous Christina, at 4:39 PM  

  • Are you cake decorating? Looks like fondant!

    By Blogger Tara, at 5:56 PM  

  • They definitly look like buttons to me.

    By Blogger Mim, at 7:38 PM  

  • I took a good hard look at these and they look like buttons to me - you can see an imprint of a fingerprint on one of the dots! But just for fun lets say that they are...Dr. Seussian tree tops for a wacky miniature railroad set.

    By Blogger lieblingsgarn, at 8:03 PM  

  • i can't get past the idea of them being chocolate chip cookies...little sculpey clay pink and white cookies with purple, white, pink, and orange chips. : )

    By Blogger Ren, at 8:35 PM  

  • They look like the cutest door stops that I have ever seen!!

    By Blogger Wannietta, at 8:41 PM  

  • Looks like a fondant covered cake to me! You know, maybe a wedding cake for a clown couple?

    By Anonymous Brandee, at 8:55 PM  

  • Happy Birthday Cupcake hats for your friends and family's celebrations!! :)

    By Anonymous Tracie, at 8:58 PM  

  • I'm making the exact same orange blanket!

    Let's see...my guess is knitting needle tops.

    By Blogger Kim, at 9:39 PM  

  • I'm thinking...stitch markers for knitting?

    By Anonymous Holly of HollYarns, at 10:55 PM  

  • Are they creative hockey pucks made from clay? If they have to do with knitting then they are to made into stitch markers.

    By Blogger Stiticher Mom, at 11:30 PM  

  • Button, button, who's got a button here....

    By Blogger swakins, at 11:39 PM  

  • Looking very Baskin-Robbins-y to me. Hmmm...I'm guessing spoon holders for a big ice cream party to celebrate your awesome success in de-cluttering.

    By Anonymous Susan, at 11:39 PM  

  • hmm.....earrings for some bring back the eighties shindig?

    By Blogger gretchen, at 7:12 AM  

  • I'm guessing buttons made from sculpy for your next round of baby sweaters.

    By Blogger Eileen, at 8:41 AM  

  • Really wild Christmas tree ornaments?

    By Blogger Jane, at 9:45 AM  

  • i'm going to guess beads to be made into stitch markers!

    By Blogger Janine, at 10:24 AM  

  • Looks like Baskin Robbins meets Dunkin Donuts. Doll house confectionaries? Buttons? Little round doo-dads?

    By Blogger brsmaryland, at 12:44 PM  

  • I am going to say, belt buckles, or something else to do with belts. I was hunting past blogs for some clues, and that's my guess.

    Whatever they are, they are truly delightful!

    By Blogger StephC, at 1:39 PM  

  • OK, I already had one guess (well, actually 3 on the same post) but I've been thinking about it and here's my theory. You made these clay things, you're not really sure how you want to use them so you made up this contest to get ideas! Am I right????

    By Anonymous Ruth Moline, at 2:30 PM  

  • hmmm. i studied and studied these. but my guess is little knobbie covers or knobs for like a dresser or a cabinet. or George Michael's earrings from "wake me up before you GO-GO!" www.knitpomaniacs.com

    By Blogger Melody, at 4:57 PM  

  • I have to say buttons. They look like Sculpey clay. Way cute, whatever they are!!

    By Anonymous Robin, at 8:04 PM  

  • It looks like you have been busy with Fimo, or Sculpey, or such like. Hmmm- buttons? Or perhaps some sort of knitting needle ends? Or hmmmm-maybe something along the line of doll plates??? Now I need to go and see what other answers were turned in!

    By Blogger Deb, at 8:11 PM  

  • Some sort of marzipan or fondant-covered edible treats? Maybe someone is having a birthday?

    By Anonymous Cindy Ericsson, at 10:29 PM  

  • Judging by the fingerprint, I'd have to guess polymer clay buttons, for fantastic hand-knitted sweaters. Love the colors!

    By Blogger eyeknit, at 9:05 AM  

  • how about replacement knobs for kitchen cabinets?

    By Anonymous crankygrrrrrl, at 10:15 AM  

  • Drawer Pulls?

    By Anonymous Jessica, at 10:16 AM  

  • I think you are making clay tops for knitting needles like the ones I love from Serendipity!

  • Fake-out candy! You put them in a dish by your desk and when people drop by and try to take one, ha! Joke's on THEM, EH?

    Just trying for anything but buttons, stitch markers, and needle-end covers. And jealous of the Martian Moon Pie thought - I love me a Martian Moon Pie!

  • Coasters?

    By Blogger hookinmama, at 11:38 AM  

  • Drawer pulls!

    By Blogger Senora Fuerte, at 11:40 AM  

  • Hmmm... I think they look like those fondant decorated cakes. So, I'm going to say they are samples for the front window of a cake store!

    By Blogger Sunidesus, at 2:09 PM  

  • I'm going to guess that they are beads made from clay.

    By Blogger Antoinette, at 3:04 PM  

  • My guess is polymer clay covers for little tape measures.

    By Anonymous cordeliaknits, at 3:55 PM  

  • I think they'd make awesome funky bar-stool seats!
