Three new competitions with great prizes!

To get ready for autumn, LoveKnitting is hosting three exciting competitions that are sure to get your needles moving!

Show off your most-loved knits!

Each week between now and November 24th, someone will win £50/$50 to spend on, simply for sharing a project that you’re proud of. It could be anything, just make sure your project has the HotTag “MyProudestAchievement,” a photograph, and specifies the yarn you’ve used.

View HotTags page!

Spooky stitches!

We want to see your spookiest stitches for this Halloween-themed contest. If you have any patterns with pumpkins, bats, witches or goblins, this competition is for you! Use the HotTag “Halloween” to win a giant stash of yarn. The winner will be picked on (when else?) Halloween!

Circular vs. Straight – this contest is over

Do you use circular needles or straight needles? Simply upload a great project and let us know which needles you use by using either the  “SassyCircular” or “GreatStraights” HotTag, and we’ll give you 15% off the most popular needle type on October 5th! Upload your projects from now until September 30th.

If you haven’t already created a Community account, come and join in! Sharing projects is a great way to connect with fellow knitters and crocheters, by favouriting projects, commenting and following each other. Find out how to upload a project here.

“What is a HotTag?!” I hear you cry. A HotTag is a specially created hashtag on our page. To enter any or all of the competitions, all you have to do is upload a Project on LoveKnitting and select the appropriate HotTag on the first page of the upload: you must include a photograph and specify the yarn that you have used. Winners will be announced in our newsletter and contacted by email with details of their prize. Not sure how to upload a Project on LoveKnitting? Click here to check out our guided tutorial.

    I love the knitted jumper! Where can the pattern be purchased?

    • Siân says:

      Hello Carole,

      I’m afraid I’m not sure which jumper you are referring to. We haven’t featured a jumper in this post, was it perhaps a different blog post you were referring to?

  11. Irish says:

    Go to any urban ghetto in the United States and then tell me about how the â€st-ateœsponsored” schools are not segregated. Repeat for those who didn’t hear it the first time. This was outlawed in the US in the middle of the last century.
