There were seven beautiful entries in the Pangea knit-along prize draw.
By Betty (aka Catlady):
The lucky draw winner was Nancy, who will be receiving a beautiful skein of hand-dyed fingering weight wool (900+ yardsâ€”enough for another shawl!).
For the Test-Knitter’s Choice Award, Chris chose Betty’s red shawl. She was impressed by both the color and the stitch definition. Her prize will be four skeins of Simply Shetland Silk Noil and Lambswool in the Craignish colorway. This is the same fiber I used for the original Pangea Shawl, but a different colorway.
I also decided to add a Best Interpretation of Theme Award, which I gave to Melanie. As she explained in her email to me, “I decided to try and knit a literal translation of the name. The green of the main body represents the large continent, and the dark blue border surrounding it is to be the ocean.” She’ll get two skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton, one in bone, the other in sage.
I’ll be emailing the winners to arrange prize shipment, so keep your eyes open.
I want to say thank you once more to everyone who participated. You made my fist shawl design experience a delight. I’m hoping I’ll be able to make the shawl knit-along an annual event and would love to have everyone participate again.
