The Fiber Factor. . .

This promises to be great fun - a knitting design competition that you can play along with.  There are twelve contestants who will be given a variety of challenges over the next several months to determine the top three finalists who will then be presented with one final challenge.   You can vote for your favourites, or try out the challenges at home and post them online.  There will also be organized knit-a-longs for the winning designs.  The first challenge is "Knit Your Life", designing a garment that explores who you are and it will be judged on inspiration, workmanship, creativity and the "want to knit it" factor.  All the info can be found here and some of the videos are quite entertaining.  I'll be very curious to see what the other knitters get up to; it looks like a lot of work but what a great idea.
