a twilight contest!

bella's mittens

announcement! we (the proverbial) are holding a contest! with twilight-happy and fiber-licious prizes to be announced!

so here's what you do:

1. knit up a pair of bella's mittens. (if you've already knit 'em, that's fine - what's important is that you have a pair.)

2. take a photo (or two, or three) of your mittens.

3. upload your photo(s) to the bella's mittens flickr pool by november 20, 2009. (yes, you must first join flickr if you haven't already - it's free. and then join the group. and then upload your photos.) add a description, caption - whatever you want. please, no more than five photos per person.

4. two winners will be declared premiere weekend on this blog in the categories "the lion fell in love with the lamb"/authentic, and "you don't belong in my world, bella"/original. interpret those as you wish. get creative. but since everyone has made beautiful mittens with gorgeous yarn substitutions, judging will be based more on photo composition than the knitwear itself. (every photo is considered for both categories - you needn't declare for one or the other.)

thirty day countdown to new moon... thirty days to submit your photos! okay - one. two. three. go!

What a fun idea! This should motivate me to get going and buy my yarn - LOL Looking forward to seeing all the pictures!

I'm about to start my first pair of Bella's and I will for sure enter them! Talk about motivation.

At last, something to get me into knitting! I have no idea how to knit, but I'm looking forward to learning---especially if you dangle a pair of Bella's Mittens in front of me. :)

Going to have to take a whole box of tissues to that movie w/ me- I blubbered through most of the book.

I can't find one of my mittens- frantically searched for it on the way out the door to Rhinebeck, but its still AWOL. Time to knit more, maybe...

Well of course I had to do this! Your Bella pattern is a favorite. I have done so many pairs and plan to do even more!

This was perfect timing. I just finished a new pair to replace the pair that got felted on my daughter last year.

We had a ton of fun doing the photo! Great idea!!!

Happy Halloween!
