Thanks so much to everyone who entered and voted in the “Follow Your Heart” Valentine’s Day project contest! It was so much fun to see everyone’s projects, they were all so awesome! A total of 23 fabulous projects were entered, which you can check out on my facebook fan page photo album here.
Even though I said there would only be 2 winners (one winner by votes, and one at random), I wanted to award the 2nd and 3rd place winners as well and spread the love some more ;). All 4 will be getting a fun little Vday package from me, as well as a Girly Knits pattern of their choice, yay!
Here are the winners:
“Heart Me Forever” by Celeste! Celeste did a beautiful job photographing her knitting in progress, her finished work, and modeling her skirt! Celeste actually entered a total of 5 awesome projects into the contest, but this one was the clear fan favorite. Congratulations Celeste! You can find her project details for this skirt on Ravelry here, and see more of her knitted creations for her and her two adorable daughters here.
“Be My Valentine” by Denyse! Denyse made fingerless mittens for all 3 of her daughters, making each pair unique by using different color combos and interchanging the word charts. The photo of all of their hands together is so super sweet! These were a Valentine’s Day gift for her daughters, and the photos really do give a fun representation of the Holiday ♥ Congratulations Denyse! You can find details on these fun fingerless mittens on her project page here, and see more of her beautiful creations here!
There was actually a tie for 3rd place, and the projects were by the same knitter! Congrats to Grisleda for her “Your Time to Shine” and “Eye Candy” projects! Griselda did a wonderful job photographing her projects using fun colorful backgrounds, and flashing us with her beautiful smile 😉 I also love how she made each project her own. You can check out all of her wooly wonders on Ravelry here!
“Winner at Random”
For the “winner at random”, I used a random number generator to determine who it would be, and the winner is…drumroll please…Jen! Jen actually entered two projects, “Sweeter then a Cupcake” and “Your Time to Shine“. Jen took fun progress shots of her projects and made some pretty sweet hats 😉 Congrats Jen! Check out more of her projects (which include a ton of fun hats!) on Ravelry here.
