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 
    http://pinterest.com and you’ll soon be pinning away.
  2. Repin this image on any of your boards:

  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!
