Knit Now ‘Knitter of the Year’ 2020

52A377BC-5348-4065-9C63-FED201CE63CC

Last week the winners of Knit Now magazine’s Knitter of the year Awards were announced, and guess what? Thanks to the votes of their lovely readers I’m one of three winners in the Online Innovator category. To be honest when I wrote about the lack of diversity in crafting and created the POC Designers & Crafters List I hadn’t expected, over a year on, that my life would have taken it’s current path. But with the BIPOC in Fiber website now so close to launch I’m both excited for you all to see it and humbled that people appreciate the work I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to vote for me. You’ve made an old, bald lady very happy.

In addition to ‘Online Innovator’ Knit Now readers also voted for their ‘Local Superstar’, ‘Charity Hero’ and ‘Designer of the Year’ and I’m very honoured to be amongst such incredible company. Three winners were chosen in each category with us all invited to the King Cole headquarters in Skipton to attend a very special prizewinner’s day out on Thursday 26th March. Now sadly I won’t be able to attend but by way of thanks to all of you who voted I’m offering someone the chance to take my place.

If you’d like the opportunity to visit King Cole HQ on Thursday 26th March all you need do is pop over to the Knit Now blog where the winners were announced and comment on their post. They will then pick a name at random and get in touch with the lucky winner to give them the details of what happens next.

You’ll find the King Cole post here

Please do not comment here to enter. For clarification this is not a sponsored post. The winner will be selected at random by Knit Now magazine and neither myself nor King Cole are involved in that selection process.

Thanks again for your votes and good luck!

New knitonthenet

The latest issue of Knitonthenet is up!

 Run by the lovely Susan Crawford and hubby Gavin it’s a beautifully designed and produced online magazine. Issue 9 which is currently available free of charge, features over 12 designs plus news, events and a Kitglobal product review in the Features section.

From next issue ( no. 10 ) the mag will be available by subscription only as rising costs are forcing them to charge in order to cover costs – I don’t know how they’ve managed so far, it’s a heck of a lot of work but worth it.
