Amazing Threads: Knit for YOU Challenge & Chill Chaser Event
New Year's Resolutions come and go. Yes, I want to Lose weight. WHO doesn't. Yes, I want to do lots of things. Every Monday I read Harvey MacKay in the Star Tribune. Smart guy and lots of what he writes applies to life and not just business. His article on Monday closed with "Make your life story a best seller." One of his many points had to do with putting fun and creativity into your life. So I am resolved to laugh more, take more time for family and friends and be ok with taking time to sit and knit when I should be cleaning or working.
Starting the New Year out right! I AM KNITTING FOR ME! - ok a hat or 2 for Avery & McKinley are interspersed into my ME KNITTING FOR ME time.
So here is a challenge - spend the next 30 days knitting for YOU!
When you are done, send a photo your project (include pattern and yarn used) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter as often as you wish. Each entry will be eligible to win a $25 Amazing Threads Gift Card. All projects (even if you don't finish) are due to us February 5, 2016. By entering you all us to publish your first name and project on our website and on Facebook.
I will post projects and the winner in my February 9 newsletter and on Facebook.
