You've all heard of knit-alongs, where knitters support each other as they work on the same project. There are often contests for knitter who participate.
A Playful Day, and Jeni of Fyberspates yarns, we're doing something a little different: a design-along contest, coming up in the new year.
We're encouraging new designers to come up with ideas for a knit accessory. Designers will need to submit swatches/sketches/description OR a finished photo of something they’ve made already that they want to write a pattern for.
Kate, Jeni and I will judge the entries, coming up with 5 finalists, and the final winner will be decided upon by an open vote from your fellow knitters.
The winner will receive yarn support from Fyberspates, a 2-hour technical consult from me, and a one-hour consult from other Kate on publishing. Deadline is February 1, 2015.
