An Amazing (Knitting) Day!
Today has been just wonderful! I was lucky enough to be selected a winner in the Elann November / December design challenge for scarves.
This is the first contest I've entered and I was very nervous, some of today's winners have won previous contests and have had their patterns published in national knitting magazines. It's a very talented group (the gals that I know) who enter these contests, I was actually very humbled to be chosen as a finalist. Being part of this talented group means the world to me.
Nefertiti Scarf was my entry (be kind Jessica!) I love cable work, the colour was mostly for fun - and to keep with the theme. It is relatively easy to do, if you have some experience with cables and colour-work. The pattern will be available on the Elann website on February 23rd.
Despite the nervousness (really, you're kind of putting yourself OUT there), I enjoyed the challenge. It was fun coming up with a concept and putting it together into a pattern. Thank you to the "Elann gang" for all the kind comments back at "our" watercooler.
