Colourmart fun on Ravelry

Just want to draw the attention of readers to the wee competition that is happening over on Ravelry in the Colourmart Lovers group. Of particular interest may be the newbie class.

To get our creative juices flowing and bring out the best in us. Here’s what we have in mind –

The Yarn
Colourmart, of course 🙂 Any type of Colourmart yarn can be used. From Cobweb to Aran, and from Linen to Cashmere

The Datesextended
May 20 – July 20 2010

The Categories – The categories highlighted below are confirmed for the contest – We’ll start categories that have at least 5 members signed up. A member can enter in multiple projects. A project can be entered into multiple categories, so you could be a desiger, new to Colourmart and doing a lace shawl, for eg, but you can only win the prize in any 1 category for that project.

  • Super Sweaters – Best sweater project (8 signed up so far)
  • Lace Garden – Best lace project (11 signed up so far)
  • Newbie projects – Best first project by a new member (1 signed up so far)
  • Designer projects – Best original design (6 signed up so far)
  • Shawls & wraps – Best shawl project (11 signed up so far)
  • Weaving – Best woven project (2 so far)

A newbie is anyone who joined this board 3 months before the contest starts, so Feb 20th and has never made a Colourmart project

(I am assuming that the newbie restriction should read “…no more than 3 months before…”)

Colourmart virgins may begin their bargain luxury yarn addictions here: or via their eBay shop.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
