A little shrug and a great contest!

Contest!

First of all I have a big request! Do you remember my before and after pictures? Well, if you don't you can go here to see them. It is still hard to look at my before pictures and think that others are looking at them too! The huge big favor that I am asking of you all to please participate in my contest by voting for me in the "Kristi Approved"contest. They are having a contest and in order to win, you need to be the person with the most votes! Well, I am going to have a contest for my blog. Let's call it a contest within a contest. If I win, I will also pick a winner from those of you who vote for me and give you $50 cash!!! Do you think this is a bribe? Well, it probably is, but there will be a winner here for sure if I win!  All you need to do is click on the following Face Book site, Kristi Approved . Then at the top of the page  there is a "like" button. Just press that button first!  Then go down the left column and find  "4 of 14 photos by others" and click "See All" just to the right.  I am the one in the black bathing suit at the end. Then click on my picture and leave a comment that you vote for me. (Remember, you have to click the "like" button, so they can make sure you only voted once). You will only get to leave one comment, so when I win I will use random.org to pick a number and that number will win the $50 in cash!!!

Now on to the cute little shrug that I knitted!
I decided to try my hand at knitting something other than hats, so remember this is my first attempt!
I had this cute little model to wear it!
She liked it but it was sure hard to get her to hold still.
The pattern was pretty easy and it didn't take long to make.
Help, my bow is slipping!

Oh, what fun it is to make cute little things for cute little models!
Have a great day and please, don't forget to vote!

Hi Donene, Thank you so much for visiting me and your kind comments. I love the shrug, the color, and especially the model:-) I am really impressed with your transformation. I know it's lots of hard work...need to lose 20 pounds myself. I went all over the place on the site and then realized it wouldn't let me vote - no facebook account. If there's another way, let me know...you deserve to win.
