It could NOT have been any closer. I mean, I was knitting like a fiend, watching the last minutes of the Name Your Dream Assignment voting, and Gale seemed stuck at #24, #23, #22. SO close, yet so far. She had to make it to #20 to go to the finals, and it just didn’t seem possible. ACK!
But when the voting closed, something amazing happened: tie votes above her! The rules for the contest say: “If there are two or more ideas tied within the top 20, we will take all the ideas to the judges. If that means more than 20 ideas goes to the judges, that is what we will do.” The three ties meant that Gale ended up at #20.
You guys cast almost a ton of votes yesterday for Gale. Thanks so much to everyone who spread the word, including Wendy, Norma, Amy, Clara, Cara, Tess and everybody over at Ravelry!
Now it’s up to a panel of judges to select the winner on April 24. Here are the finalists. I hope Gale gets the chance to do her dream project.
