We haven’t had a QueerJoe Blog Contest for a while. About time? No?
Price of Admission
I’m only looking for one thing from you. Make a recommendation for making something with this yarn!
The yarn is single-ply, fingering weight, 100% Superwash Merino wool.
If you need to see other views of the yarn to help you enter the Blog Contest, here you go.
It’s hard to convey just how “silvery” both the Steel Magnolia and Silver Fox are, so may want to look at The Perfect Purl web site to see it more professionally photographed.
Send me an e-mail using the “Contact” link in the menu and let me know what you think I should make with these four yarns. It can be a published pattern, a design idea. It doesn’t have to use all four hanks. But be compelling in trying to convince me to choose your project idea.
Because, if I choose your idea, you can win four hanks of Dragonfly Pixie in your choice of colors ($92 worth of yarn). Plus you get bragging rights for this project while it’s being knit!
For all the color work I do in my knitting, I honestly am terrible at envisioning what a garment will look like when it’s completed. So, for this project, I’m relying on blog readers to show me ideas that make superb use of this stash yarn.
The pattern can be yours or someone else’s. It can even be just a concept as long as it’s described in such a way that I can envision and execute it. It can be free or readily available for purchase or download.
I will evaluate the entries based on the following:
- Best use of as many of the colors of Pixie yarn I have
- How much I would personally want to wear the resulting garment
Enter your idea by Friday, May 24th at midnight, (Eastern U.S. time). You can enter as many ideas as you want. Feel free to include the four colors of Dragonfly Pixie you’d like to win if your design is chosen. I will notify the winner on Saturday, May 25th. If there are any questions about the contest, I will try to respond during a very busy week next week, but there may be some delay.
Making great progress on the Tilt Cardigan, but will it be enough?!?
The button-band/collar is almost complete (I worked on it like crazy!). I still need to cut the steek and sew in the sleeves and weave in ends. Not sure if I’ll be wearing this lovely cardigan at the Men’s Spring Knitting Retreat next week…but I’ll be trying! Maybe I can just wear it as a shawl.
