There was no getting away from the fact that I have a birthday coming up in 2 weeks time, so to celebrate this auspicious occasion I am holding a competition. I am offering up a skein of Posh Yarn, Lucia sock wool (30% cashmere 70% merino) in colourway 'Chortle'. This is an earthy blend of pale green, ginger, pale blue, and terracotta, since I am born under an 'earth' sign....all you need to do to win is pick me out of the line up above, just leave your answer in the comments, all correct entries will be entered into a draw on the 30th April. If no-one gets it right I will enter everybody into the draw and I am happy to post where-ever!

You can try the birthday calculator for yourself here
Well none of them looks like your profile picture :-) so I'll go for 43 because she looks like she is about to do something else... maybe even reaching out to spin...
Ok, indecision, indecision. I agree with Caroline - none of them look like you?! But I'm going for no 7 as there's maybe something about that determined mouth...
No 43 is certainly on the way out of there.
Great idea for a quiz and happy birthday for when it arrives.
You can't begin to imagine how pleased I am that your Native American plant is Wild Clover!
(You KNOW I love a good contest, and this is fabulous!)
hmmmm, personally, I think you and I are quite compatible, go figure, eh?
Great fun! I keep waffling on my answer. My first response was 16, then 6 - something about her smile,but I'll stick with 16 - a confident, forward looking girl.
As far as I can recall I have never seen a photo of you on your blog so this is a guess. I would have said No7 but that's taken so will go for No 32; great quiz:)
Hope you have great Birthday, mine pass in a haze now !!
Hmmm... number 7
A wild guess, number 6.
The birthday calculator is interesting!
I don't think a photo of me now would be any help, but have a look in my flickr album, photos of Neo may help too!
Yes, I have to go with #7, as well. There's something *very* Neo-like in that impish smile (and I guessed that before reading your comment above, Jo).
Hard to say, but I'm going with 16!
I'm picking 43. I like her attitude. Second choice would be 6 just because it's a favorite number of mine...
By the bye - the deed was done!
Hmm I don't think I have ever seen a photo of you either, I'm drawn towards No 6 and No 43...
I'm going for No 6, she has a pretty smile.
I the meantime, what an excellent photo.
Just popping by
To say Hi
And check out my lurkers!
Do you sell handspun?
Do you dye?And sell that?
Always looking for good indie stuff.
I'm going to say #15. I love her expression and she's wearing socks!
Wild guess, but I say that you're number 15. This is an awesome contest in honor of your birthday. Happy birthday when the time comes!
I think you may be number 16! I love the way she is looking into the camera and her cheeky confident smile...now would she dye her hair red and cut it into a croppy style? hmmmm
have you seen this at al http://picperfics.blogspot.com/2007/04/thinking-blogger-award.html ?
I'm torn between 6 & 7 but I'll settle for 6
I think you're No 6 Joanna
I'll go for number 42. No particular reason, and probably wrong 'cos I'm useless at this type of competition.
42 is a good number, it's the answer to life, the universe and everything according to Douglas Adams!
Happy Birthday when it comes ...
I'm going for no. 42. Don't know why, but she looks nice.
Have a lovely birthday.
I'll go with #16 just to be different.
I'm going to guess number seven!
I'll guess.... #32.
Happy Birthday! :0)
I'm guessing #16. My birthday is also around the same time - May 8 - and I'll be 60!!! Yikes. Many happy returns.
