2015 is going by a little too quickly! Summer time is soon to arrive!

Let's have some fun for this contest. We don't know about you guys, but we here at dAKnitters LOVE to play video games of all types. PC, console, mobile, you name it, we've probably played it.

So for April, we have come to the decision to have a fun contest theme: VIDEO GAMES.

Just like last month, there are no item restrictions to this contest. If you want to knit a blanket with a Mario mushroom on it, sweet. Crochet the Xbox "X" onto a hat? Awesome! Make a scarf using the colours from Mass Effect? We'll take it! As long as it relates to video games in some form or fashion (and is knit, crochet, felted, etc.) then it applies to the contest. :D

Note: Please identity the name of the game (or if using a company logo, name the company) for ourselves as well as fellow members to know what the item is referencing. There are SO many games out there, it's best to have at least a little hint on what your creation is based on. :)





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 March 2015 contest.

- Submit your entry to the folder, "April 2015 Contest". The folder is open today, and will remain open until May 5th. We usually close the folder on the 1st, but due to being late to announce the last contest's winners, we are giving you guys a few more days to work with.



Now, it's not a fun contest without PRIZES! We have three places for you guys, so here are the prizes for each place.


First place:

- 200 points from :iconcloudpow:

Other prizes TBD

Third Place:

(TBD = To Be Determined)

Along with those prizes, if you guys (members) would like to contribute a prize, no matter how small, to the list, please feel free to comment with what you wish to contribute!


With all that being said, the LAST day for submissions is May 4th, with the winners to be announced on May 9th (to allow all the judges fair time to judge the entries).

READY. SET. YARN!

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.

Ah, okay. Try submitting the deviation from the deviation page itself to 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!
