Election Season

Tired of Trump? Had enough of Hillary? No, I'm not going to start talking about politics, but I will offer you the chance to vote on something else if you so choose.

Several years ago, I went on a narwhal-knitting kick. First, there was Noah.

He seemed a bit lonely, so next I knit Natalie.

Narwhals travel in pods, so Neil joined the gang.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I saw that Alpaca Direct was running a Critter Contest. These were my favorite critters, so I uploaded my photos to enter the contest. I've been voting for myself since then, but discovered after I had entered three times that you can only vote for one entry once every 24 hours. I've never done anything like this before, but since I have no chance of winning without some help, I'm asking for your help if you so choose. 

So, if you would like to vote for my narwhals (or really any entry!), just click on this link.

Scroll down a bit to just under the knit Corgi dog, click the "View Entries" tab, click on my photo of all three narwhals and click the "Vote" box. If it's stupid, too much of a hassle, or you just don't feel like it, that's certainly fine. Voting is open until sometime in March; one place says March 15, another says March 31, but I appreciate any votes, any time. Heck, I appreciate that you even took the time to read this whether you vote or not!

I've always meant to add a purple narwhal to the bunch, so that may be what I do if I win. I'd love to be able to say that I'm the creator of a prize-winning pod! Thank you for reading, considering, and any voting you might do; I greatly appreciate it!


  1. You can count on me. I'll make sure I vote as often as is allowed. Your pod family is very charming and a nice distraction from the political.

  2. Love these! And a purple one would be perfection!!

    Good Luck!

  3. :-( not on Facebook...but know that I'm casting a virtual vote for your almost-pod every day until the contest ends. I think your critters are definitely prize-worthy!!

  4. I totally want to see you with a "prize-winning pod"!

  5. Boo, I don't do FaceBook or I'd vote for you! Helen

  6. I also am not on FaceBook but those guys are very cute. (I really thought I was the last remaining non-facebook person in the entire civilized world! Greetings, Mary and Anonymous!)

  7. I had NO idea you were into narwhals. Super cute!

    Fun fact: Boy 1's boy scout troop patrol named themselves the Jedi Narwhals. They had to get patrol patches custom made (no Jedi Narwhals in the standard catalog... imagine that!).


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment! :-)
