This is the last official day of Socktoberfest and with that we have our last Socktoberfest contest. It's been a fun month of contests, hasn't it? I have really enjoyed reading all of your comments each week, and have had fun with the themes! I may decide that we need to have another contest filled month throughout the month of December - with Christmas themed contests. You will each have to let me know what you think about that and if that would strike your fancy.
This week's theme is all about the scary movie - the classic horror film. We all love a good scare, don't we? There are so many so called "horror" films that have been made - The Exorcist, The Haunting, Poltergeist, Rosemary's Baby, Psycho, The Shining, IT (do you remember the freaky clown in IT? - that gave me nightmares for years)...the list goes on and on. Of course, there have been quite a few newer horror movies introduced in recent years - like Scream, Scary Movie, Halloween...and unfortunately this list goes on and on also. Personally, I'm a huge fan of some of the classics, or at least some of the movies that were made several years ago. There's just an element of scary in those older films that today's film doesn't seem to carry with it.
So this brings us to the contest question this week! I have chosen a movie which I think encompasses the words "scary" and "horror" and "nightmare" all into one. It's a movie I grew up watching, and in fact was directed by one of the most famous movie directors of all time. This movie has some of the scariest sound effects of all time too! Can you guess what it is? Well, of course I'll give one tiny clue....
A famous line from the film:
"They're coming! They're Coming!"
Now can you guess what is is?
If you guess correctly, you will win some fun items from our shop, including some wonderful yarn from a dyer we have not yet posted in the shop (that's the only clue you're getting!), stitch markers, and a couple of other little fun things that I've found to go along with the theme of this movie.
Best of luck! The winner will be announced this Friday!
Also this Friday we will be providing more details on the upcoming shop update we will be having this weekend, as well as a list of what's included in the November Sale!
Happy Halloween and Happy Wednesday!
