Craft in Public Week Contest!

Comments are closed!  We’ll send out the special coupon to all entires – thanks all!

Starting this Saturday is the annual Knit in Public week!

This was started in 2007 as a day for those who craft alone can get together with a bunch of other knitters! It has since grown into a week long celebration – this year it runs from June 9th-17th and if you go to the webpage, you can find events in your area.

Well, we all love the idea of celebrating knitting in public – we do that already! (For instance, the reason I have so many handknit socks? I was on a train for 2-3 hours a day for my communte when I lived in Boston).  But why be so restrictive?  Many of us also crochet or spin in public too!

So we’re going to celebrate Crafting In Public with a new contest!  

We are all heavily addicted to Pinterest – we could spend hours looking at & pinning all sorts of inspirational pictures. So we thought we’d have some fun by including our new favorite place. This contest is going to be a bit different than our usual blog contests but there are just a few quick steps:

  1. Follow Knit Picks on Pinterest. If you do not have a Pinterest account yet, it’s easy to set up. Right now, it’s invitation only but just request an invite at and you’ll soon be pinning away.
  2. Repin this image on any of your boards:  Make sure you’re directly repinning from the original pin!
  3. Leave a comment on this blog post with the link to your pin. (make sure you have an accurate email on the comment – it will not be public)
That’s it!  After Knit (Craft) in Public week is over, we’ll send out a special coupon to everyone who took part!
