Enter the ‘Mom & Me Knits’ Contest to Win a $50 Gift Card

HI Everybody!  So, as you know, there are lots of supercute new craft sites popping up all over.  We all love our Ravelry, and you also know that I LOVE my Craftsy.  BUT have you taken the time to check out CraftFoxes?

This week, they’ve got a really fun contest running, where if you knit a Surfer Tee from my new book “Mom & Me Knits” you have a chance to win a $50 gift card to Michael’s Craft.

Here’s an excerpt from their blog:

We’re celebrating Mother’s Day by asking you to show off your crafty talents.

Stefanie Japel’s new book “Mom & Me Knits” (Chronicle) is filled with patterns for matching pieces mother and daughter can wear. However, a mother and daughter may have styles that are quite different. To enter our “Mom & Me Knits” contest, we’d like you to innovate on Stefanie’s pattern for a casual T-shirt and then upload a picture of your work to the Projects section before May 21, 2012 at midnight ET.
The winner will get a $50 Michaels gift card plus a Chronicle Books gift pack that includes “Mom & Me Knits,” “A Life in Stitches” and “The Sock Knitting Kit.” Two second-prize winners will get a $10 gift card plus a copy of “Mom & Me Knits.” Detailed directions are below. (Crocheters who can transpose a knitting pattern are also welcome to enter.)

1. Look at the Casual Tee Pattern

Follow the link to see Stefanie Japel’s pattern for a casual knitted tee. (In “Mom & Me Knits she titles it the Surfer tee.) The page includes a version for a mother and daughter. Decide if you want to make the one for an adult or child (or both). We also want to invite crocheters to interpret the pattern.

2. Envision Your Version of the Casual Tee

Maybe you’re going to decide to knit the tee out of a funky yarn that will make you look like a disco superstar. Or perhaps you’ll replace the front pocket with a flower. We want you to take inspiration from the pattern and create something unique.
