I had such fun with the comments and participation for the Make-a-Monster Competition that I thought I’d start an other competition.
C O M P E T I T I O N
Since it is the beginning of the new crochet and knitting season, I’ve been looking at new yarns, pattern inspiration and pattern books. The one thing that occurred to me is that there are many of us out there with a stash containing several single beautiful skeins of yarn that we bought for the colour/texture/the way it made you feel/all of this, but it’s not yet found a project home. There comes a time when just looking at them from time to time is no longer enough. You just need to make something of it.
But there are not many truly one skein patterns out there. It is a bit of a conundrum. So the idea of the new Competition was born.
One Skein Challenge
In order to be eligible, please leave a comment and tell me about your favourite project to be made with one skein. If by any chance you have a second to “Like” Monster Yarns, I’d be very grateful.
One skein = 100g or less. No yardage limit but please be sensible.
Open to All.
The winner will be the most innovative idea and plus marks for providing the pattern too.
Competition closes on 13th October and winner will be announced on 14th October.
Some things are the same – knitters really like winning yarn. Even non-knitters are converted. See here for the winner of the Beginners Group and her reaction to winning yarn. Another yarn convert!
So the winner will receive these beautiful individual skeins of yarn – in DK (lambswool and cotton in cream), Aran (100% pure wool in tweed flecked rusty orange) and Chunky (100% pure new wool in tweed flecked regal purple) weight. Perfect for any single-skein project!
Look forward to hearing from you.
