Knitcircus Contest

Posted on Apr 23, 2012. 172 comments

The twitter and blog comments were tallied and Savannagal is the winner via random number generator! Congratulations!

Since Knitcircus published my first pattern in February of 2009, I've published 99 patterns, written and published my first book, and have had my knitting patterns featured for sale in 54 shops in the US and Internationally. I've traveled all over the country to vend at fiber shows, sign books, and introduce the concept of One Skein Knitting Patterns Using Luxury Yarns to knitters and shops.

And it all began with one person who finally said yes. Thanks Jaala, I'll never forget the moment you said yes to publishing my first pattern! Now we're both writing books (I'll be releasing books 2, 3 and 4 in the next 18 months), and Knitcircus has a wonderful series of Knitting Recipes Ebooks in the works as well as three other titles. Please have a look at Knitcircus' first in the series Knitting Recipes: Hats and Cowls and keep an eye out for Knitting recipes: Shawls and Scarves. The photography is so beautiful and the patterns are lovely.

So In honor of today's Interview in the latest Knitcircus Newsletter I'd like to have a little contest. Leave a comment in the comment section on my website, or tweet me @fickleknitter about your favorite thing about Knitcircus and I'll pick one comment using on April 28th to win a signed copy of my first book, Leaves, Fickle Knitter Design Volume 1 and a skein of Tilli Tomas Artisan SOCK in "majestic" purple to knit the Wave or Particle Shawl.

I feel like we've grown up together with our respective businesses. Going way back to the beginning, Knitcircus was the first magazine to feature one of my patterns in print. And now I'm really proud to see how we both have grown in the past three years and looking forward to more growth in the future.

    I saw your booklet, briefly, at KnittedWit’s booth at CGFF. I didn’t have time to peruse carefully; I’d love to take a closer look! (I had to get to a class.) Beautiful stuff…

    Thanks for introducing me to a new (to me) site! Love the online magazine format and now found another podcast to add to my ipod queue. Looking forward to meeting you when you come to VA Beach in May to Yarn Club.
