I know many of you are itching to know the answers to the silly little leprechauns puzzles, questions and riddles! I am excited as well! I love to give out prizes so I am looking forward to his answers too!
First, let's see who was able to outsmart this tricky little leprechaun and figure out all of his riddles! Where did he trip you up at?
His first clue in the rules and prizes section of the "Scavenger Hunt Blog Post" was to check the website, the blog post, and the website pages.
Those clues were in #1, #4, and #14 of the rules list when he said to check the website, the website pages, the scavenger hunt blog post and said if you "see it, count it."
So if you counted the objects in the header and footer of the website once and then counted the objects on each page of the website separately AND then counted ALL the objects in the "Scavenger Hunt Blog Post" (even the ones in the list and on the Wordsearch image) you outsmarted the leprechaun trickster!
His next trick was to try to trip you up on the 4 Leaf Clovers! He laced the website and the scavenger hunt blog post with both 4 Leaf Clovers and 3 Leaf Clovers! If you counted both the 3 Leaf Clovers and the 4 Leaf Clovers then he got you!
His last couple of tricks were to hide a couple of the objects super duper sneakily! Did you see the crochet hook that was hiding by the tape measure in the North Star Blanket on the review section of the Home page?
And did you catch the one hiding on the Shop Ravelry Page?
Did you see the rainbow hiding in the BIO photo on the About Page?
And did you catch the Baby Yoda that was hiding beside the Little Green Wise Guy Applique review that looked like him on the review section of the Home page?
"Riddle Me this! Riddle me that! That little leprechaun definitely had tricks up his hat!" Now it is time for me to share all the answers to the dote little leprechauns questions!
Here is where all the words for #8, #9, and #10 were hiding! Oh, and a couple of you found one "AND" that was backwards! I did not realize that fella had snuck a backwards one in there so if you answered 3 or 4 the leprechaun counted it for you!

Then you won the GRAND PRIZE but did anyone get them ALL right???!!! Keep reading to find out...
...but first, I would like to tell everyone that participated THANK YOU! This was a lot of fun and something new I have never tried before! This was meant to be for fun and was a twist on the "guess the number of jelly beans in the jar" kind of thing with riddles and clues!
So thank you for being a great sport and having great attitudes while I tried something new! I appreciate you all for joining in on this new adventure! Now let's keep moving towards the winner announcements!
It seems this leprechaun was a little trickier than I thought he was! No one got 100% of the answers correct but we did have two participants tie with 7 out of the 10 answers right!
The leprechaun decided to count everyone's answer for #5 since he realized he may have been a little overly tricky with that one ha ha...
We had 16 total participants so this is what the leprechaun and I have decided to do...
The two participants who got 7 answers correct will get the GRAND PRIZE and the other 14 participants will get the RUNNER UP PRIZE! WOOHOO!
So this means the 2 GRAND PRIZE WINNERS will get every pattern available to date in the Ravelry Shop and the RUNNER UP's will get 10 patterns of their choice! Congratulations everyone!
All other VIP's who did not get a chance to finish or submit their answers will get one FREE Pattern of their choice! I will post the FREE Code in the VIP Facebook Group and message everyone else with their prize code for the Grand Prize and Runner Up by no later than Sunday the 21st!
And do not worry, even if you are a VIP that didn't participate at all I am happy to share this one free pattern with you too!
Is that a great surprise or what?!?! So if you want to see what place you came in while I am working on arranging the prizes check out the grid below!
All-in-all I had a great time and now I know how to make adjustments for something like this the next time! I'll meet with the leprechaun before next St. Patrick's Day to see how we can get him to be a little less tricky and work on improving is "riddles" and "tricks" ha ha ha!
This was the first time I have tried an event like this and it seemed to work out pretty well though! I hope you had as much fun as I did! I really enjoyed hosting this event!
I love to play games and try to host some sort of event whether big or small at least once a month in the Orchid and Bee's VIP Group (or every other month when life gets in the way lol). So if you are not currently a VIP please feel free to join us so you never miss out on the fun!
Don't forget to subscribe so you never miss out on a free pattern or games and prizes! Thanks again for playing and have a wonderful day!
