Who Wins A Free Trip To Meet Vanna White? You Decide!

March 7th, 2014

2012 Winner
Vanna White and last year’s winner, Nancy Nielsen,
with her “Gramminal” baby hat and bootie set.

It’s time to vote for the winner of the Vanna’s Choice Contest! The contest started in November 2013 and ran until a month ago. Entrants designed a project with at least three Vanna’s Choice colors and sent us their photos.

The Grand Prize winner gets a trip for two to Los Angeles, California to meet Vanna White. There are 15 additional prize winners who will receive yarn. We’ve selected 27 finalists from the many entries we received. They are some of the most clever, beautiful and original ideas we’ve seen from our contests and we think you’ll be amazed as well.

Many tell the story of what inspired them, the moment that the idea occurred to them, and why they chose their colors. Some even took pictures of themselves and their families using their creations.

Last year our prize winner not only met Vanna, but was offered a publishing contract for a book of patterns for her whimsical baby hat and booties patterns.

Help make someone’s dream come true and get inspired at the same time. You can vote once a day so choose one or more favorites and vote often.

    Although I love the pattern, I can not vote for the Happy Hippopotamus. It is the same pattern created and sold by onebadassmother.com and posted on pinterest.

      It is created by HeidiBears on Ravelry… The site you mentioned even credits HeidiBears for the pattern. :)

  • Ria

    The Happy Hippopotamus is Heidi Bears Happypotamus on Ravelry, and I’m not convinced this is her in the contest. There are 1000+ projects on Ravelry of this, so not so original

      if you ignore the super confusing way this competition was worded and read the fine print, the competition rules do state the pattern doesn’t have to be their own design, they can use another persons pattern, but the entry photo has to be their own, (the photo for that puppy hat is stolen)

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Ria. The entry is being reviewed and is in the process of being removed.

  • Daniel N Christeen Jarnagin

    The puppy hat is designed by Repeat Crafter Me… She is not only the designer, she is the creator of the actual hat in the picture that was submitted. She did NOT submit the picture, and did not give permission for someone else to submit it.

    Really sad that Lion Brand didn’t catch the stolen work on the puppy and Happypotamoous. Hopefully both of these entries are disqualified. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/happypotamus-the-happy-hippo-crochet-pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/crochet-puppy-hat-pattern
