Mini Competition Number 1

The first ever Bugsy Competition.

I am so excited. Yesterday I went to an Op shop and bought a bunch of knitting books. I accidently bought two exactly the same, so when I got home and realised, I thought, "Lets make a mini competition and make the copy the prize". So here it is.

This is a picture of all that I bought: (descriptions are below in detail)

This is the prize:

For a chance to win this book, be the closest to guess how much I paid for it all.

Rules: You can only make one guess and the winner will be the one who was closest in their guess.

Detailed description. I bought:

Competition will close this Sunday night, Winner announced on Monday! Now I know this isn't the most exciting prize on this earth, but I think it is a nice pattern book, and there are some things in there that I will definately end up doing. Judging by the guys glasses, this is about 20 years old (maybe more?) but still good.

So - If you want a chance to get this pattern book - have a guess!

$6.00? I know it's a super bargain if you got them all for that price!

Bugsy I can't knit so I won't even hazard a guess, but just wanted to comment and say that the expression on Spectacle Man's face is priceless! You could almost attach a thought balloon, something like:

"Ooh. So that's where that other knitting needle went."

How weird. I went to the Op Shop yesterday too... I got a lot of bargains also. I am out for the comp too, as I don't knit either.
Hope your having a lovely day..
Yipee, Tomorrow is Friday and it's Friday night games on Big Brother Only 3 weeks left ..Then what are we going to obsess over?
Hugs and more husg to you.
Luv Lesley

hehehe OvaGirl - loved your comment on spectacles man! LOL.

Shell, as you are the only one who has guessed, I can safely say you are the closest so far LOL

Lesley, love to hear about all the bargains you got. BB is stupidly addictive but I am luckily only half addicted - I don't watch all the time (which means you have to tell me all the goss).

I am gonna guess if it isnt too late that you paid about $4?

I agree that look on his face is priceless!
