A kitty of a contest

One of the things I love about the internet is how easy it is to connect to the knitting community. I probably wouldn't be designing patterns or selling yarn if it wasn't for Ravelry and blogging. Another cool aspect is the way it connects designers and yarnies. As you may know, WCY has been used by a few designers, including the uber-talented Anna Dalvi.

And just before Christmas, I was contacted by Kristina Vilimaite AKA AnimaKnits. She was about to release a new shawl pattern and wanted to do a very unique KAL
 As the pattern is called "Stray Cat", and the KAL included some divine feline inspriation, she thought a little bit of WCY would make a suitable prize for the KAL winners. I agreed, and in the end, we've donated two $35 gift certificates for the KAL. 

So... if you'd like to make a Stray Cat shawl (before March 11), and you'd like a chance to win a WCY gift certificate.... get on over the the Anima Knitting club group...  
I'll be knitting a Stray Cat shawl myself.... I just have to choose the yarn....

That's a lovely idea! Choosing yarn/color is fun, but also hard.

What a fun idea for a kal. I shared it on wildflower wool's fb and twitter so more people can join in the fun!

That's awesome! Your yarns are so lovely they deserve the recognition. :) That shawl is lovely too.

Those shawl kitties are adorable. Much nicer than a couple of very bad cats that got into my knitting last night and pulled out a sock I was working on and unraveled it all over the house. :(
