Enter Our Egg-citing Knitch Knit-a-Chicken for Charity Contest!
If you think contests are for the birds, this one's for you!
Pick up Blue Sky Alpacas' Knit Chickens Pattern and some fabulous Knitch yarn* and let your imagination go free range. Submit as many wacky chickens as you like by the June 15, 2009 deadline.
We'll have the whole flock of entries on display at Knitch until we announce the Grand Prize winner, who will receive $25 Knitch credit every month for 1 full year, during our Lucky Duck Sale in June. And, yes, we will post photos of all the entries.
The first 5 entries will each be rewarded with a half dozen eggs from Kim's chickens . . . as soon as they start producing . . . which should be any minute now.
Once the contest ends, and the judges have done their crowing, we'll donate all of them (chickens, not judges) to the children's hospital, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, otherwise known as EGGleston (ok, really it's Egleston, but we can't help ourselves!) We know they will all bring comfort and delight to children undergoing treatment.
Create a theme or put together a flock of friends to do a group theme. The cockamamier the better! Entries will be judged on originality of theme, creativity and execution. There are no restrictions on size or numbers of contributors, contributions or additional materials. *We only require that you use yarn from Knitch (new or stash) to make your basic chickens.
So get those ideas hatching . . . and good cluck to you!!
