Contest & a Card for the DUCK

I knit a while, thought about it, and came up with a way to reward y'all for taking this never-ending blue journey with me:

Presenting:

THE DUCK CONTEST

Will the intrepid Wounded Knitter finish the DUCK sweater in time? When will the torture be over? Make a guess and get a goody!

Da Rules:
  1. Pick a date and time when you think I will finish the sweater between, uhm, now and 5:00 am Pacific December 25th. (If I fail to finish the DUCK project before that time, I will have failed and the HusBoy will receive the gift as-is.) Finished is sewed up, ends woven in, and buttons attached, but not blocked.
  2. Send an email to lastinsite[at]verizon[dot]net by December 10th. Include your name, blog, and mailing address (optional) at the top and your bestest guess way at the bottom. I will avoid looking at the guesses until the DUCK is complete to keep things on the level.
  3. Everyone who sends in a guess with their mailing address will receive a winter holiday card, signed by myself and the HusBoy if I can rope him in without letting the cat out of the bag. I don't care if I you live on the moon and postage costs more than gas, you are guaranteed to get snail-mail.
  4. In addition to getting mail, two folks closest to the time actual time (before and after) will get yarn and etsy goodies. I will post pictures of the proposed goodies once they arrive and I get some alone-time with the camera. In the case of a tie, I will figure something out, trust me.

If y'all have any questions, send me an email/comment/messenger pigeon and I'll make something up. When making guesses remember that I will be home and unable to make much progress on the sleeves next week. Tell your friends, I'd hate to only send out three cards...
