It’s time to vote for our Third Quarter Challenge entries! It has been so fun to see the different projects that have been knit up with our Loopy Ewe Solid Series line of yarn. After spending a year working on that line, it’s great to be shipping it out to so many of you.  Did you see the colorwork mitten pattern in the latest issue of Knitty, using our line? I love the bird on the thumb.

Here are just a few of the entries into our challenge, which was to make anything you’d like, using our solids line. You can see all of the amazing entries, here.

Wearables by Wendy:

Check out the full gallery for details on these projects, and to see the rest of the cool socks, scarves, mitts and hats. We have had the best time seeing all of these come in! Please send your vote for your favorite to:  We’ll award our Knitter’s Choice award, as well as drawing from all entries for another award. Each person who completed a project and had their photo in to us by 10/7 also earned a 20% discount on yarn for their next project. :-) You can also see a bunch more projects on Ravelry by typing The Loopy Ewe Solid Series into the yarn search, and bring up the projects. I especially love these – I want to make them!
