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.

We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Apparently Aragon has locked down travel today. Seems we made the correct decision in getting back to France quickly. Yesterday was tough but we seem to be moving on again without resting. The Aire was not very lovely and the noise incessant. Half Term effect is in full throttle. As well as children being alarming,… Continue reading October 27, 2020 at 12:32PM
