Vote: "Ring Your Neck" Scarf Challenge

Phew! This was meant to be a quick and easy challenge, but I'm thinking most of us were feeling a bit pressure towards the end.  It is a busy time of year with the changing of seasons and the hustle-bustle of holiday preparation.  But we did it, didn't we?!!!  Congratulations to everyone who participated and met this challenge.  Big hugs to everyone who signed up!

For those of you who may be hearing about this challenge for the first time, let me give you skinny:
  • For complete guidelines visit the "Ring Your Neck" Scarf Challenge homepage.
  • Participants challenged themselves to make a scarf using a new technique/tool/pattern.
  • The deadline to complete the scarves was Nov. 30
  • Now the challenge is over, so we have a just-for-fun poll to see which scarf gets the most votes.
  • Winners receive bragging rights and a sparkly new blog button.
If you scroll down to the bottom of this post, you'll find the poll.  Anyone can vote for for their top 3 scarves once a day.  Before you vote though, you must look at all the wonderful entries.  They are all so different! Under the photos are helpful links that will tell you more about the participants and their crafty creations.  So scroll through all the entries, pick your top 3 faves and VOTE!!!
All photo credits belong to their corresponding participants.  Because I am always provided with photos of varying sizes and shapes, I make some administrative decisions like creating  photo collages or using one big photo only. My goal is to showcase each scarf in the best way I can and give each participant equal "space".  The order of entries is random.
