Calling all budding designers!

Get ready to think "pink!" Unleash your creativity and enter the Crafter's Choice/Vogue Knitting Designer Scarf Contest. All you have to do is create a knitted, crocheted, or mixed medium (both knitted and crochet) scarf from your own previously unpublished design. Feel free to experiment with stitches, patterns, or motifs-but be sure to incorporate the color pink in some way.

Entry must be postmarked by April 15, 2005. (TAX day - so that's easy to remember!) Get creative, win prizes, and help fight breast cancer!

I forget about these kinds of contests. You don't see them widely advertised so I'll try to post them when I see them.

Here is an online competition for our friends across the pond to win Hobbycraft gift vouchers. Just find the gift parcels hidden throughout the site. Deadline is November 22 for £50 worth.

Clotilde's Sewing Savvy offers a grand prize of a Bernina Sewing Machine and also a monthly prize of an autographed copy of Clotilde's Sew Smart book! Plus a bonus Clotilde tote bag. Hey, they offer "tatting" as a category of interest!

Oh here's a fun one! The Third Annual Ugly Necklace Contest.

Fire Mountain Gems just had a huge contest but the deadline was October 31, so maybe keep an eye open for next year's contest.

Paradise Fibers has a quarterly contest and since the last deadline was Nov. 1, a new one should be starting up anytime.

And once again, I've muddled past my bedtime.
