The annual Philadelphia Area Knit Out and Crochet Event is scheduled for Sunday, September 18, at the Convention Center (12th and Arch), and this year there's an added feature: a scarf contest.
To publicize the American Heart Association's current campaign for women's heart health awareness, Go Red for Women, the Knit Out is sponsoring a Go Red Scarf Contest. To enter, knit or crochet a scarf--your own original design--in any shade of red, and bring it to the Knit Out. The winners will be announced at 4:30, and each of 4 runners-up will receive goodies like signed copies of Scarf Style, gift certificates, and knitting accessories. The winner will receive a library of 5 Interweave Press knitting titles, plus publication of her/his scarf pattern on Interweave Knits' website.
Two important things to know: you must be present at 4:30 to win, and all entries become the property of the Knit Out, and will be donated to the American Heart Association.
There's still plenty of time; surely there's a pattern idea you've been looking for an opportunity to try out? Go to it!
