Dec/Jan Winner and February Contest

Our December/January “Self Portrait with Yarn/Knits” yielded quite a smattering of amusing and lovely pictures, but we’ve narrowed it down to one:

Ok Mr. Pretty, in this one, look serious.
(though we do feel that our dear friend and teacher Parna deserves an honorable mention.)

Laura (with help from her friend Mr. Pretty) has won a skein of Indie Dyer Superwash Fingering Merino in a mysterious (and beautiful) color, one Lantern Moon crocheted cake key chain, and a Soak sampler in Aquae, all tucked into a cute little baggy.

February, as you know, is all about love (though if you disagree, we’ve got something for that too.) Some things we love at Twisted?
1) Chrissy Gardiner
2) Socks
3) Hearing your crazy knitting stories

Last week in our video interview we asked Chrissy Gardiner to name the craziest place she’d ever knitted (you’ll have to watch it if you want to know the answer!) Now, we want to ask you too.

What is the wildest, craziest, most ridiculous place you’ve gotten down and dirty with a pair of needles (or a crochet hook) and some yarn?

Post your answer in the comments and the two (yes TWO!) winners will be chosen by popular Twisted-employee vote at the end of the month. We will reward your intrepid devotion to fiber arts with an autographed copy of Chrissy’s crazy-wonderful book, “Toe-up!”

Good luck!

(Another thing we love at Twisted? This insane picture of the craziest place that Star has ever knitted:
Good way to poke an eye out, if you ask me.
At least, I ASSUME it’s the craziest. But who knows with that gal. There’s no stoppin’ her.)
