Briar rose yarn

It's prime time to send in your Health and Love Scarf Design Contest Entries! The winning design will be worked up for you in this luscious Briar Rose hand-dyed yarn for the Fall 2011 Issue.


You don't have to be able to draw like Dani Berg; just get into your happy place and find a couple of stitches you love to knit or have always wanted to try, and knit up a swatch. Send some pics and basic info to me at and you'll be done! Click here for official pdf of info .


Beside the chance to win wonderful prizes donated by Handwerks, Krafti-Kit, Jed's Joy, Shannon Okey, Knitcircus and Lima Pop Shoppe, your design will be used by knitters to cheer people with heart disease and their families.

The Madison chapter of Womenheart wanted a pattern they could use with wool and hand-dyes, so you can help them create beautiful handworked scarves for members currently facing or surviving heart disease. The winning pattern will be made available for free to Womenheart and other charity knitting organizations on the Knitcircus site in perpetuity to honor their spirit of generosity.

 So get out your needles and that favorite stitch dictionary and create a project which will have a positive ripple effect.

Looking forward to seeing your entries,
