I digress. She's got this Ravatar that has created quite a stir because it's something of an optical illusion without meaning to be an optical illusion. Everybody who sees it agrees. It's a picture of a butterfly and a ____________________.
Some people see a caterpillar. Some people see a whale's tail. Some people -- MOI included -- see an elephant trunk sniffing at the butterfly. And one person who shall remain nameless saw a butterfly fart.
It has been the subject of much speculation and finally the person -- "mkrval" to us -- revealed what it was one day and poof! The caterpillars and the tails of whales and the elephant noses vanished.
I digress again.
Anyway, mkvral had her 1,000th post recently at Ravelry -- she's a real chatterbox, that one and she's over 30 posts past that now -- and in honor of her first millenial post, I put up a contest (technically, it's a drawing with a writing assignment) for people to reveal their own experiences with this mystery Ravatar.
It is posted over at Ravelry on the Swap on a Budget group board. Can't miss it.
So what do you see?
To be included in this drawing, all you have to do is post a story on your blog (or in the thread on Ravelry) -- fictional or non -- about what you see when you look at the Ravatar.
Prizes are highly relevant stitch markers.
First prize: Set of 6 caterpillars-and-worms
Second prize: Set of 4 penguins (no, nobody saw penguins in the Ravatar. They're just my favorite and it's my contest, so there.)
Third prize: Set of 3 orange elephants.
Contest closes at 9:00 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, August 13th. Drawing to be held sometime around 3:30 PM PDT on Thursday, August 14th.
