Finally picked up knitting again!

I did start knitting again yesterday but since it is my contest entry for Knitting Camp, I can't talk about it here. There way too many Campers who read this blog. So you'll have to be patient for about a month and then I'll be able to show you what it is.

For those who haven't been to Camp, each year we put up a list of contest themes for the next year all throughout the weekend. Then, on the final day, we vote on them. The winning theme is the theme for next year.

People and companies donate prizes for the contest and Schoolhouse Press graciously donates whatever else is needed to round out the prizes. Each of us has a few minutes to describe our entry and then they all get put on chairs in the middle of the room. Each person gets a ballot and we pick our favorites. The entries with the most votes are at the top and the one with the most votes wins.

There are prizes for many of the spots due to the generosity of the prize donors. Whether one wins or not, it is a lot of fun and I enjoy coming up with ideas for entries.
