Are you almost done with your cowl for our crochet along? This Wednesday (Oct. 5) is the big day, when you'll link up your cowl and start voting for your favorites! I can't wait to see everyone's finished work! It's been so fun to have this project to work on together, don't you think?
(Ahhh, one last ridiculous crochet comic. That feels good. Jockstrap for our next crochet along? Anyone? Anyone?)
So, in case you haven't participated in a link party before, I'll let you know how it's going to work. Remember way back when you added your name to the crochet along participants list? (And if you never got around to adding your name, that's fine--you can still link up your finished cowl on Wednesday!) Linking up your cowl is going to work basically the same way.
In order to link up your cowl, you'll just need to post a picture of it online somewhere. That means you can either:
1) Make a blog post about your cowl and include a picture of it. (If you have a blog, I'd love if you'd post about it so we can come visit you, and your friends and readers can come here and vote! Just make sure you include a link back here in your post so they know where to find the voting.)
2) Upload a picture to the Maybe Matilda flickr group.
3) Or have a picture of your cowl elsewhere online.
When you head over here on Wednesday, you'll see this at the bottom of the post (just like the original sign up list):
Click the "add your link" button and a few info bars will open up:
If you've blogged about your cowl, copy and paste the URL of that specific post (not your blog's main page, but the post about the cowl) into the URL box. If you're grabbing a picture from somewhere else online (flickr, photobucket, picasa, or wherever you put your pic), open the page with your photo and copy and paste the URL into the first box. Then put your name or your blog's name or your cowl's name or something, I don't care, into the name box, and your email (no one will be able to see it, don't fret), and click next.
If you're confused about where to find the URL, or how any of this works so far, head over here and check out this help page from inlinkz.
A page will show up with all the pictures it could find at the URL you entered; just select the picture you want to show up here, and you're done!
We'll end up with a nice pretty list of participants' pictures here, and there will be a little vote link under each entry, so take a look through all of the entries, vote for the one you like best, and pass the word along to your family and friends so they can come vote for a favorite as well!
So finish up that cowl if you haven't yet, snap a couple cute pictures, and get blogging (or flickring, or whatever) and meet me back here Wednesday to add your cowl! I can't wait to see your work . . . make me proud.
