There's 18 days left, folks!

No, the world isn't coming to an end, but the contest will be on July 15th! That's right. You've got 18 days left to knit or crochet something and simply send us a photograph to be entered to win the Big Contest. A few folks have taken this very seriously. Linda Hanford tells us she's used up all her skeins of 60/40 alpaca. Here's her latest, and last, entries:

A Hurricane Hat for herself (she's already made one for dear hubby), a pair of fingerless mitts, and a 

Irlanda Isabel Corrales has also sent in another entry! Here's her crocheted neck warmer:

So, folks, get those needles clicking!

The needles are flying!

Faerie Garden Scarf

Congratulations and a big thank you go out to Lynn Swiriduk, who sent us not only a photograph of her Faerie Garden Scarf, but a detailed set of instructions for her creative design. You can find them here.

Lynn knit her creation in Sweetheart and she wrote, "I used all but 5 yards of the skein." 

I don't know how long it took her to make the scarf, but she said, of the instructions, "I think it took longer to write them down than to actually knit the scarf." 

"And our first contestant is. . ."

Congrats to Gracey for being the first person to send in her contest photograph! She bought her skein of Mamma Mia at the Rhode Island Sheep and Wool Festival.

Gracey said, "I made a cowl of my own's pretty simple and used most of the skein...there's about 96 inches left, enough to make a crocheted flower...."
