Just Born, makers of those cute little Peeps candies so popular during Easter. The theme this year was "Hanging With My Peeps " so folks used various props with their peeps.
My entry was peeps knitting and modeling hand knit hats and scarves. Well, surprise! I'm among the top 10 finalists, .......but, sadly, am placed at the very bottom as far as votes are concerned!
I'm seeing this as a serious disregard for the craft of knitting.
My Peeps are pure knitting-no flashy or stylized background!
I've kept my props to the minimum BECAUSE THE KNITTING SPEAKS FOR ITSELF!
Now, I'm not hoping to win (as the competition has some very clever entries) or even place second, BUT I DO HATE THE THOUGHT OF BEING IN THE VERY LAST PLACE!!!! Sort of reminds me of the school days fear of being the last one picked for dodge ball....
So I 'm asking all of YOU KIND AND GENTLE KNITTERS out there for your support!
PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!!! Go to THE MORNING CALL
DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, APRIL 6, AT 12 NOON.
AND CAST YOUR VOTE FOR THE PEEPS KNITTING CIRCLE !
Help knitting go public ESPECIALLY IN THE LEHIGH VALLEY, PA! Say YES to knitting by voting for my Peeps!
Enough of my shameless plea.
Onto what else I've been up to....
I've been reigning in my tendencies to buy knitting books since I've undertaken organizing my knitting room. Sadly, I no longer have the space to store any more books and let's not even discuss the outrageous amount of yarn I've acquired over the last 10 years. A small yarn shop has sprouted in my spare bedroom. Anyway, I frequently borrow knitting books from our local library. A great way to see new knitting, get inspiration, save money, and space as well!
I would consider purchasing BOTH of these books if I had the room for them!
