and the winners are...

guys, your photos are so awesome - i seriously had a difficult time making a decision. but i had to, and so, without further ado - here are the winners!

"the lion fell in love with the lamb"/authentic - melissa of blog_mbphotos!


seriously, how could i not choose this photo? it's like a kid version of the marketing campaign! the lighting is gorgeous and i can't believe she got her children to pose for the shot. i also love the mini-mitten mod. beautiful photo, don't you agree?

"you don't belong in my world, bella"/original - nancy fry / adnilamyrf

"Be Safer"  Twilight inspired Bella Mittens

this photo was actually one of the first posted and it just cracks me up! great use of props to create an atmosphere, and just, well, smart and funny! and as a bonus - nancy's also designed a pattern for allice cullen fingerless mittens inspired by wardrobe in new moon - check out the ravelry link!

Congratulations to the winners. The photo with the kids was our favorite all the time.

Saw yesterday with my daughter Twilight and New Moon as a double feature in germany. It was great.

Kind regards

I love the mittens; and so do thousands of others on ravelry! You must be very proud of your creativity. I have a question about row 39 & 40.
I'm having trouble with Row 40. 39 says to purl last and first stitch together. Row 40 says the next stitch is now your first and has the k1, p1 x 9, k12, p1. I don't have a stitch after the k12 left to purl. Can you help?

Rose said...

Thanks again for the great pattern. It was a very clearly written pattern (the confusion above was all mine; it was clear the next morning).

Bettina said...

Oh,please spanish the pattern...can you do this?I don´t understant the stitch and my english is very bad(sorry)
