A Contest

It’s a Finish-a-Long!

Gather up all of your unfinished projects and let’s get them done together.  I want to be able to free up some of my needles.  And let’s face it, I want to be able to free up some of the mental capacity that’s stuck keeping track of ALL of my unfinished projects.  My goal is to get this done by the time Sitches Midwest rolls around.  That’s right, I’m going to Stitches!! 

So here’s what we’re going to do:

  1. Gather up all of your projects and figure out what’s reasonable to get done in the next month or so.  I think you’ll be surprised at how little there is left to do on some projects.  There’s no reason this has to be only knitting.  If you have sewing projects that need to get done or spinning that’s be languishing on the bobbins, by all means those count too. 
  2. Send me an email (jposkozim at duluthnews dot com) saying that you want in on this contest and what you will be completing.  OR leave a comment on the blog with your name (user name is fine) and what you will be completing. 
  3. Tell me when you are done. 
  4. Contest starts July 6 and runs until August 13.  All projects must be finished by the 13th to be counted as a prize winner. 

The best part?  We will have prizes!!  I am donating a skein from my stash for the oldest unfinished object that gets completed by August 13th.  Barb from Fabric Works is donating something yarny for the person that gets the most projects completed.  I’d love to give out another skein or 2 for participants in the contest.  If anyone else would like to donate a prize, please email me at the above address and we’ll add you to the list of sponsors.

  1. SO excited that you get to go to Stitches! That’s on my knitty to-do list šŸ™‚

    I’d love to play along, but I already started doing this šŸ˜¦ Maybe if I start something different by the start date? Let me know what you think! I’d love to keep you company in your challenge šŸ™‚


  2. I want in…but don’t have an idea of where to start in my project basket…so this time I’ll just cheer you on! BTW…wore my birthday shawl/scarf thing to work today and have gotten lots of complements! The stupid dog also tried to eat it yesterday, but Dad got it away unharmed.
