A contest of EPIC proportions!

The other night I had a dream that I met Barack Obama, and asked him to pose for a picture with me and my sock. In my dream, he was totally cool about it.

Also, he smelled amazing. This dream was so real, I woke up and checked my computer for my picture to post on the blog.

But alas, it was a dream.

That’s the last time I fall asleep with The Daily Show running. Maybe.

Part of me thinks it would be super-cool to have a presidential candidate sock picture. Sounds like time for a contest.

The Contest:

Get a picture of one of the candidates, a sock, and you. (Photoshop does not count.) Your pictures should look something like my picture with Taylor Swift, Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Cat Bordhi, or Stephanie Pearl-McPhee,

If you’re a non-knitter, a regular store-bought sock will do. Please tell them that it’s for a knitting blogger- I don’t want you to get shot by the Secret Service.

The Prizes:

Knitter prize: 4 oz of handspun. Your choice of colors. If you’ve seen it on my blog, flickr, or ravelry already, it’s very likely I haven’t knit it yet. Or, I can get more and spin it for you.

Non-Knitter prize: A custom iPod sock.

BUT WAIT, there’s more!
If you get all three major candidates (McCain, Clinton, Obama), you get the Hat Trick Prize. My duplicate copy of the very Out Of Print “Sweaters for Men” by Alice Starmore. (Non-knitters, sell this on eBay.)

Remember to tell them Jasmin sent you.
