February 2015 Challenge!

Hey guys! We are on the LAST MONTH of winter! *Happy Dance*

BUT, before it starts to warm up, you all know that this month will be the coldest yet. Which is why we've decided to do one last month of bundling up with some of our work:

SCARVES

Now, I know what you're thinking, "You just want a long stretch of fabric...?" But in actuality, let's extend it to cowls and neck wraps. Essentially, if it can wrap around your neck, it can go into the challenge! :D



This is simply a challenge, so there will be no judging, and no prizes for the entries.

BUT, there are still rules to follow. :)

- Entries can be of anything you would otherwise be able to submit to the group. The bottom line: have it be fiber art. That includes knitting, crochet, felting, and creations made using fibers.

- Limit 3 entries per person. We know you all create things 24/7, so we cannot accept 10+ entries from one person (even though we would love to see all of them!).

- NEW entries only! You guys create awesome things, so we would love to see you guys create something new just for this challenge; it makes it so much more exciting to see what you guys come up with!

- You MUST have the group icon :icondaknitters: somewhere in your description. You can do this by typing : icondAKnitters : minus the spaces.

- Please also state in the description that it is for the February 2015 Challenge.

- Submit your entry to the folder, "February 2015 Challenge". The folder is open today, and will remain open until March 1st.

Hello everyone! 2015 is off to an exciting (and fast!) start. Here we are in February, and what better way to celebrate than with the theme that you have been seeing all around you:

LOVE

:heart: :iconvalentinesdayplz: :iconbigheartplz: :love:

Now, just because it's love, doesn't mean it has to be red! Hearts come in many different colours and forms. This also includes words of affection, "I Love you" "Kiss me" "FREE HUGS" etc. (remember, family friendly submissions please).


Now, here are the rules:

- Entries can be of anything you would otherwise be able to submit to the group. The bottom line: have it be fiber art. That includes knitting, crochet, felting, and creations made using fibers.

- Limit 3 entries per person. We know you all create things 24/7, so we cannot accept 10+ entries from one person (even though we would love to see all of them!).

- NEW entries only! You guys create awesome things, so we would love to see you guys create something new just for this contest; it makes it so much more exciting to see what you guys come up with! This includes that the entry must be EXCLUSIVE for this contest, and cannot be submitted to other group contests (that voids the entry being "new").

- You MUST have the group icon :icondaknitters: somewhere in your description. You can do this by typing : icondAKnitters : minus the spaces.

- Please also state in the description that it is for the February 2015 contest.

- Submit your entry to the folder, "February 2015 Contest". The folder is open today, and will remain open until March 1st.

Hello. Thank you for your continued interest in the group. :)

Please remember to read the guidelines of a challenge before submitting to the challenge folder. I'm a fan of WoW, but the theme for the November 2014 Challenge is Native American Heritage. :)

Funny thing, I don't remember submitting it to the challenge folder... I just hit the submit art right on the home page of the group.

People, I need help! Since I learned knitting and crochet by myself, there still are a lot of things I don't really know how to make them. I'm doing a blanket in knitting and want to cross stitch the picture on it. Now, I know how you finish the loose ends of yarn in cross stitch, but since we're talking about blankets here, do I just hide the loose ends behind the stitch? Isn't it dangerous, like, with time won't it loose itself when washing, etc?

To avoid loose stitching, double back at the ends of your stitching as you would on a sewing machine. You can also add a lightweight backing to the blanket for added comfort from the bare stitching itself. Also, when it comes to washing handmade items, it is suggested to wash it either by hand, or on a delicate cycle on the washing machine, and drying it in the air, or on a low-tumble dry setting.

Good luck!
