By popular demand, the next Knitting Project Competition!

Some of you may remember that back in January we ran a competition for your knitting stories… The response was amazing, with our theme of New Beginnings being interpreted in so many different and imaginative ways! Many of the stories that touched our hearts told of the amazing companionship and togetherness people find through knitting (see one of our runners-up ‘Oh My Bear’ Hoody for Kathy’s wonderful story of being helped through illness by friendship and knitting). So the theme for our next competition seemed obvious:

Knitting Together

This can be interpreted any way you like. Perhaps you were taught to knit by a beloved relative; you might now be teaching your own loved ones to knit, or just knitting for them as a way of showing your love for them. Maybe you knit with friends, in a group or class; perhaps you find friendships through online knitting communities; or you might be part of a movement that involves people knitting together for a common cause, even if they don’t know each other.

What’s the prize?

The winner will receive a voucher code for £100 to spend at Your entry and the runners-up will also be featured on our blog and social media networks where everybody can admire them!

But I don’t live in the UK!

That’s fine – the voucher will deduct the equivalent of £100 from your shopping basket in any of the currencies we support. As of 11th Jan 2013, these values are approximately US$150, CA$150, EU€120, AU$150, NZ$180, DKKr870, SeKr970, and NOKr880. These values may change with currency fluctuations.

How do I enter?

Just send an e-mail to with Knitting Together and the title of your entry as the subject. Give your entry a title, include at least one photograph of your project and tell us all about it! You can write as little or as much as you want, but we suggest a few short paragraphs. Include your full name, e-mail address and phone number and your age if under 16 so that we can be sure of contacting you if you win! To stop our e-mails getting all snarled, please don’t send us any photos bigger than 1MB. If you are under 16 you must have parental permission to enter.

Who can enter?

Everyone! Except Loveknitting employees – that wouldn’t really be fair. However, if you are under 16 you must have your parents’ permission to enter.

When can I enter?

Any time up until Bank Holiday Monday: Monday the 1st of April 2013. We recommend getting your entry in well before this date, just in case your e-mail goes astray.

Who will see my entry?

Your entry may be featured on our websiteblogsocial media networks and other publicity material. Of the contact details provided with your entry, we will only publish your first name. If you would prefer us to disguise any information included in your entry before publication, just let us know.

Are crocheted projects allowed?

Of course! We love knitting – that doesn’t mean we don’t love other crafts too! Anything made mostly out of yarn (or felt, or fleece) is allowed.

Anything else I need to know?

Because we may publish your entry and there are rules governing the use of a person’s likeness, it is important that any photos you submit featuring a picture of a person’s face are submitted with that person’s permission, and parental permission if the person is under 18.

The entry consists of three items that will have been created by an individual: the project itself, images of the project and the written text. If any of these items have been made, taken or written by someone other than you, it is essential that you have that person’s permission before submitting. In other words, you can ask someone else to take the photo for you, you can have help writing the textyou can even submit a project made by someone else – but you must have permission from those people to submit their work. If anyone else has been involved in the creation of any of your submitted material, please make this clear in your entry.

Can I see the full terms and conditions of entry?

Yes: they can be found here.

    I work with the three to four year olds, and I have knitted food for the home corner from cakes to sandwiches fruit and the children love them. I have also used many of my knitting projects to create some wonderful displays. With the songs they sing they like to act them out with the things I have knited from 5 little ducks to 5 currant buns they have a great time.

    My knitting experiences started with the most patient of Grandmothers. Beulah had been a prairie girl of then Michigan and a young married woman in the Saskatchewan Canadian prairie. Her family survival was based on her sewing and knitting skills. Well I was her match and unfortunately I wasn’t able to complete anything but 50 years later those lessons came back to me and I am now knitting scarves for my grandchildren. I will be not match for my grandchild when it comes to teaching them knitting and crocheting but I am going to try to pass on the family tradition.
