It's Scavenger Hunt time! Until next Sunday, it's World Wide Knit in Public Week, and there are This Is Knit customers all over the place, snapping pictures of their knitting and crochet. You can find details of the competition here, and this is the Ravelry thread for posting your images. But we've promised you a look at the prizes, so here goes! We're giving away â‚¬250 worth of goodies, and there's prizes for first, second and third place. Up at the top of the page you can see First Prize - a mouthwatering collection of three skeins of Malabrigo Rios, a dreamy skein of chunky alpaca from Coolree Yarns, an exclusive shawl pin designed by Eimear Earley, a starter set of Knitpro "Dreamz"needles, a darling set of cleverly shaped scissors, a packet of Maria's beautiful jewelled stitch markers, yarn needles, a set of sweet metal "handmade" tags and the dotiest wee crocheted jumper dangling from a keyring. For second place, look at these gorgeous things: a skein of This Is Knit's exclusive "Powerscourt" colourway in Hedgehog Fibres Sock, a skein of Mirasol Sami, five balls of Navia Duo and an excellent Navia pattern book. And for third place, you can win a colourful basket of yarn from Noro (that's Silk Garden 4-ply in there), Louisa Harding Noema and Sublime Baby Bamboo, together with some Mirasol Paqu Pura. Our prize, though, is seeing your pictures! So grab your knitting, your flyer, the list of challenges and your camera, and let your imagination run with it! The competition thread on Ravelry is open until Sunday next at midnight, so you've plenty of time to throw your (knitted) hat in the ring!
