TO ENTER: No purchase necessary. The odds of winning a prize are determined by the number of entries received. To enter you must leave a comment on this post. Comments open at Tuesday, November 23rd, 8:30 a.m. EST and close at Friday, November 26th, 9 p.m. EST.

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION: Using a random number generator, four (4) winners will be chosen from among all eligible entries on or after Friday, November 26th, 9 p.m. EST. The first number generated will be winner #1, the second, winner #2, and so on. Winner #1 will have first pick from the four prizes. Winner #2 will choose from the remaining 3 prizes, and so on. Winners will be notified by the e-mail address used when posting the comment.

If a selected winner is ineligible, declines the prize, or if the Sponsor is unable to make contact with a selected winner after reasonable effort and time (3 business days), the prize shall be forfeited and the other winners will move up in their ranking. So, if the Sponsor hasn’t heard from winner #2, winner #3 will take his spot, and winner #4 will become winner #3. The Sponsor will then use the random number generator to select a new winner #4.

AWARDING AND DELIVERY OF PRIZE: Subject to verification of eligibility.

The Four (4) Winners will Receive:

Prize #1: Two skeins of Noro Taiyo in the #4 colorway. Retail value: US $20.00.
Prize #2: Two skeins of Noro Sekku in the #5 colorway. Retail value: US $20.00.
Prize #3: One skein of Noro Sekku in the #6 colorway. Retail value: US $10.00.
Prize #4: Same as 3 above (so, I have two of these to give away, and each one is a separate prize). Retail value: US $10.00.

Once you’ve chosen your prize and provided a mailing address, the Sponsor will mail the winner the prize within 1 week.
