Be a part of Planet Purl's
American Gift Knitting!
Nothing says "love" more than a hand-knitted or hand-crocheted gift from the heart. Small projects made with a little yarn and a lot of heart are on the needles and hooks of knitters and crocheters everywhere for holidays, weddings, birthdays, Valentine's Day and "just because." Show us how you say "I love you" with yarn.
Help us celebrate both the beauty of America and the artistry of American knitters with Planet Purl's upcoming book "American Gift Knitting." We plan to select 51 designs to be included in the book, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Designs chosen win their author two copies of the book and a $100 online gift certificate to Dreamweaveryarns.com! Yarn support will be provided for the selected designs.
To enter, you'll need a sketch and decription of the project, yarn specifications, and a scan or photo of a swatch representing the project. Both knit and crochet designs are welcome. The designers will retain full copyright of the project. We will be providing yarn support for the selected projects.
Entries will be accepted through October 31st, 2011. Winners will be notified by email. Start your needles!
