Since we had such an amazing response to our first speed knitting contest, we’re cooking up another one. Lots of you also requested that we host one over a weekend when you have more time to knit, and we’re more than happy to oblige. Mark your calendars, ladies and gents, our next speed knitting contest will begin at 4pm Pacific time on June 12th, just in time for Knit In Public Day!!
I can’t tell you what we’re going to be knitting, but I can say that if you don’t have at least 10 balls of worsted weight cotton or cotton blend yarn in your stash, you might want to place an order now! Comfy Worsted, Shine Worsted,, and Simply Cotton Worsted are all good choices.
We will be knitting in the round, so make sure you’ve got your favorite DPNs or circulars ready to go.
If you’ve never knit in the round before, this is a wonderful excuse to learn. Check out our video tutorial on knitting in the round here- http://community.knitpicks.com/video/knitting-in-the-round-fixed
