As part of my ongoing goal to publish more knitting designs, I entered a design competition in January. Much to my delight, my Circuits hat, which I designed for my younger brother, is one of the five finalists!
The prize is truly incredible: a two-hour consultation with Knitty.com’s lead technical editor Kate Atherley, yarn support from Fyberspates, and a one-hour consultation with the host of the A Playful Day podcast on launching the pattern. My ultimate goal is not necessarily to design professionally, but I absolutely want to design and publish in a professional manner, if that makes sense. As my dad taught me, if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
So what comes next? The winner will be determined by popular vote, and I would appreciate your support! All you have to do is click the “love” button below the picture of the green Circuits hat here on Ravelry. Voting ends around midday, probably GMT, on Monday, February 9, so vote by February 8 just to be safe, okay? You must have a Ravelry account to vote, but what kind of knitter are you without a Ravelry account? 😉
I’m RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED by this chance – so fingers crossed!
