The competition started at 9am on Monday, February 2nd, and our contestants have been knitting furiously ever since. I’m not even sure some of them stopped to eat or sleep! That gorgeous Hemlock Ring Blanket was completed by Cristi-Lael at 2:54 (PST). Congratulations Cristi-Lael!!! She knit the whole thing in less than 72 hours!!!
Our runner up, Ruthmci, finished her blanket at 3:03 (PST). It was an incredibly close race!
All of us here in the office are very impressed by the dedication and speed of all our contestants. Thanks so much for playing along!
Peggy Stuart rounded out the top 3, finishing her blanket at 4:05. Nice work! Cranberry must be a lucky color, don’t you think?
And if you didn’t get to join in the fun, it’s not too late, the contest knitalong has been converted to a Hemlock Ring Blanket knitalong for people who are still working on their blankets or for anyone who is inspired by Cristi-Lael, Ruthmci, and Peggy and wants to knit a Hemlock Ring Blanket of their own. <
