Happy New Year!

To celebrate the ringing in of the new year, Drunken Monkey Knits presents a poll and a contest. First? The poll (just cuz I'm curious). If you need a refresher on any of the shells, check out the link list in the sidebar on the right.

Second, the contest.

Everyone's favorite Knit Knack has received 14 shells over the past 13 months covering many of the major holidays and a number of other special events throughout the year. So... what's in store for the new year?

Well, that could be up to YOU! This is a contest with a deadline of one year. I'm looking for ideas for shells to make for Knit Knack in 2008, and if I make your shell idea, you win a prize! (Prize to be determined, but I'll make it good, I promise.)

I do have a small list of ideas already, but I'm always looking for more ideas. You can either leave your ideas in the comments or email them to me at brooketyler2002 AT yahoo DOT com. I can't wait to hear what you come up with!

Have a very happy new year, everybody!

DUH! I thought you were describing ME! I love turtles, am tall and handsome, and my speech is incomprehensible, irrepressible, and reprehensible!

And, okay, so I voted for three of Knit Knack's shells! I might as well have voted for all of them --they are all inspired and outrageously genious!!!

(Guess what I just finished ...)

Happy New Year!! I voted for the Snowman. I thought he was adorable. I am also partial to the St. Patrick's Day and the Mother's Day. Can't think right now but will surely try later.

I had such a hard time choosing just one... but I didn't cheat like your mother! :) I voted for Thanksgiving Knack, but I liked Tractor Knack and Pirate Knack and Snowman and St. Patrick's Day and Sheep...

I voted for my first love, Sheep Knack. Oh, how I lurve him. :D

I'd like to see a Super Knack!

It's too hard to choose which one I like better since I like them all so much.

I did vote for Pirate Knack, which brought me to suggest maybe a movie themed Knack? Such as maybe a Star Wars Knack (he'd make a wonderful Yoda since they're both green already) Darth Knack or you could go the super hero route and do Spider Knack?

Or maybe even an Optimus Prime Knack?

How about Harry Potter Knack? :)

How about Prom Date Knack?

LOVE the outfits. Voted for St. Patrick's Day as a good Irish girl should...

I picked Tractor Knack - it was hard to choose because they're all adorable, but Tractor Knack reminded me of my cousin's son and that made me smile.

How about Burns Night Knack? Or Groundhog Day Knack. Or Chinese New Year Knack. Or Dr. Seuss' birthday Knack (I remember his books having turtles). And those are all in the first few months of the year. Less time-oriented, how about Hockey Player Knack (I'm Canadian; I have to suggest it), or Chef Knack, or Dancer Knack.

Clearly, my imagination is running wild. How many ideas am I allowed to submit? Maybe I should be making my own turtle...

I voted for the snowman but I had a hard time choosing.

I was going to suggest that you make a knitting outfit but that might lead to an existential crisis while he grapples with the idea that he may have been his own creator.

i must admit, i ADORED the snowman knack as soon as i saw him.

i do stage crew every year for a production of nutcracker, and i would be thrilled to see a nutcrackerknack! ohh, and someone else made a comment about star wars before... knack would lend himself REALLY well to dressing up as an ATAT. i've got a million ideas...
