Knit urge

I got this great knit dishcloth pattern last night, and I finished it last night too!
I just HAD TO knit last night, and once I started on this project, I couldn't put my needles down!

"House Work Sucks" knit dishcloth

Rachel created this cute dishcloth design, and I'm now trying to decide which one I'll get next from her website. :)

I got to knit more since my knitting skill has gotten really rusty. :(
My cast-on is a little floppy, and it was hard to keep the same tension. Let me just blame it on the cotton yarn, ok. :D

Hi,

My name is Susan Ripley and I apologize if you have already received this message from myself or an associate. I am gathering knitting and crochet patterns for the 2009 Pattern-A-Day Calendars from Accord Publishing. I am contacting you today in the hopes that you will submit a pattern or hang the attached flyer somewhere in your store or post it to your website / BLOG /pod cast to let your customers and friends know about the design contest and the chance to get their designs published. You could also email the flyer if you have a mailing list. Patterns are accepted from individuals, shops, charities and yarn companies. There are no restrictions and the patterns can also be something that is currently being distributed for free. You maintain all ownership – you just give us permission to print and distribute.

Some of the yarn shops that have worked with us in the past have also offered fun pattern design/writing classes. This is a great way to get customers into your store while taking advantage of this great contest. $500 will be awarded as First place for both calendars; there are also 2nd and 3rd place prizes; and all contributors whose patterns are used will receive a 2009 calendar.

In addition, it can be great advertising. Every pattern you submit will have a credit to the designer along with a link to their website or blog. If you are a yarn company or store, your store name is listed as well as the designer’s name.

Please go to our website at http://www.knittingpatternaday.com and learn more about the submission requirements and our contest. The contest deadline is December 15th, 2007. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will gladly answer your questions. If your email program stripped the PDF, you can download the flyer at http://knittingpatternaday.com/images/designcontest.pdf

Thanks,
Susan Ripley
