* Edited* Kickin' Off Zira's World Tour

* Edited to include... (scroll down to the "***")

As promised, knittin' chicas, I have an exciting announcement with regard to Maryland Sheep and Wool. Because the lovely and talented IndigoMuse cannot make it to MS&W this year, she's sending me in her place. Yes, you heard it right, I'm going to make my debut at the festival. So what you say? I'll tell you why - there's a contest and prezzies involved! Here's how it will work:

* The people who are taking me are a closely guarded secret so you'll have to be on the lookout for me. I can tell you that I'll be at the Yarn Harlot's book signing. As I find out other details of where I'll be, I'll let you know.
* Spot me, Zira, at MS&W and take a picture of me. You can take a shot with me or with some of your favorite fiber or even a where's Waldo sort of shot. The more fun, the better.
* Post the picture on your blog and email IndigoMuse (indigomuseATverizonDOTnet) to let her know that you caught me at the festival.
* Links to the pictures will be posted on the IndigoMuse blog beginning the week of May 9th.
* Two or three weeks later (depending on how quickly the photos come in) we will begin a contest where everyone can vote on their favorite picture.
* The winning picture will be featured on a custom photo stamp!

Of course there will be other prezzies like more felted monkey finger puppets and who knows what else. I can't wait to take these picture and meet everyone. IM and I are hoping that this debute will lead to a world tour where I spend a couple of weeks here and there with some of you knit bloggers and keep a digital diary of my exploits. If some of you ladies (and guys too if you're out there) are interested, shoot us an email and we'll start a tour list. I'll probably post one more time before I head out to MS&W. Da un buen fin de semana mis amigas!


*** IM helped me add two new features to the blog's sidebar. One, is the addition of a guest map where you can add your pin to indicate where you live as we try to decide on how to plan my potential world tour (how to break up each leg, etc.). Please be sure to add your email and potential dates. Two, I've included a discussion forum where you can leave messages and have discussions with other bloggin' chicas about my tour or other topics. Hasta luego...

Zira--you're invited to tour around Israel; just drop me a line to set up dates.

I personally can't wait! Have a nice flight Zira!

This is so-o exciting. I can't go to the MS&W but to experience it vicariously through Zira would be great.

So fun! I can't wait to see Zira on her world tour.

Maybe she can take a little trip South!

You are too funny Tanya! I think Zira is the most adorable monkey I have EVER seen. I was wondering if I could pay you to make me one just like yours. I'm really serious! Let me know. I can't wait to meet Zira!!!

Have a great week!
