OK, I am having my own little contest starting now and closing on May 7th.
I was sent some very stunning Spun Recycled Sari Silk and I don't know what to knit it into. The yardage is 150 meters (160yards) and about 6 wpi making this a bulky yarn. This is where you come in! I am asking you the reader (like I have that many readers..lol) to send me a pattern for the yarn. I will pick my favorite pattern out of all submissions and the person who sent me the winning pattern will receive a hank of homespun yarn (spun by me) and a set of 5 handmade copper stitch markers.
The rules are:
1. The pattern must be a FREE pattern with a picture located on the internet.
2. Links to patterns must be posted to the comment section of this post no later than May 7th. Make sure no one else has posted a link to that particular pattern in the comment section before you post your pick. If you are the second person to post that pattern link, your entry will be voided.
3. The pattern must not exceed using 160 yards(150 meters) of the Sari-Silk. This of course does not exempt using the Sari-Silk as an accent yarn or another accent yarn:)
I guess that is about it. I think with only 3 rules everything should be pretty self explanatory:) Plus, it should be pretty quick and simply for anyone who is interested to make a quick submission.
OH, BTW Kat who sent me this fabulously pretty yarn already picked out Unbiased at Knitty.com:)
Other Fun Facts..................
I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.
I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)
'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
