All righty guys! Sorry I'm a bit behind on everything lately. The theme for Contest #10 is One Ring Size Baskets. I filpped a coin between the tied themes, and it won. So. The contest will end on April 1. Submit your submissions in this thread. Don't put any pictures in here that aren't actual submissions, as I will get confused. Razz So on you go! Submit!
_____________________________________________

1. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry should be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite.

4. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

Also, if you are planning on entering into the contest, leave some kind of "I'm in" message. Smile

Not me. I have never made a basket and probably don't have time. But I will enjoy the entries.

Update:

As I'm really busy right now with school/work/family, Deidre will be handling the contests for a while. She started them, so they're just going back to her in a way. I'll still be around to help out, but she'll be handling the main gist of it.

Quick question: I have rings of the same ID but different wire diameters (one's 17 gauge, one's 16 gauge). Can I use both? Or does it have to be exactly the same size? Or can I use the thicker wire, but only for 1/3 of the basket max? Thanks. Smile

Rings with the same ID but different wire diameter would qualify as two different sizes. So basically, no, you cannot use both. One wire size + one ID is all you get, that's what makes it so challenging. Coif Cool Smiley
