Hello everyone! Good to see you all in a new year!

We loved the results for the December 2015 contest, and this contest will be just as fun.

Theme: SHADES OF RED

No, no, there's no catch to this simplistic theme. If red, pink, or even purple (blue + red) is used in the piece, it's good to go! Making a hat with red trim? Nice! A pink plushie with red eyes? Cute! Baby clothes with purple accents? We'll take it!

We're not picky with how you guys use red and the variations of it, so let's have a lot of fun and see what you all come up with.





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!

- 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 2016 contest.

- Submit your entry to the folder, "February 2016 Contest". The folder is open today, and will remain open until March 3rd.



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:

- 100 points from :iconcloudpow:
- Journal Feature from :iconwildphoenix22:
- Journal Feature from :icondaddys-girl1997:
Other prizes TBD

Second Place:

- 50 points from :iconcloudpow:
- Journal Feature from :iconwildphoenix22:

Other prizes TBD

Third Place:

- 25 points from :iconcloudpow:
- Journal Feature from :iconwildphoenix22:
- Journal Feature from :icondaddys-girl1997:
Other prizes TBD




(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 March 3rd, with the winners to be announced on March 6th (to allow all the judges fair time to judge the entries).

Ready, set, YARN.

thank you for accepting me.  I make a lot of craft items. Is it okay to share them from time to time with a link if anyone is interested in buying them? Thanks

Hello.

You can submit items made using knit, crochet, or other fiber manipulating techniques (including felting). Yes, you can have a link in the deviation to your shop/storefront if the item is up for sale.

Hello, everyone! I am sad to say, but since I my computer died a month ago there was little I could do to check on you. :( I do what I can on my mobile phone from time to time. I'll also try to upload my stuff when possible. Take care all of you. :3

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.
