BEST FIRST SWEATER
My first entry for the #wewearknitbot challenge 😊 this is my #georgetownsweater - the first sweater I ever knit! I knit it using #cascadeyarns which I bought at @blacksheepyarns in Port Moody 😄 I'm wearing my favourite @ragandbone jeans and my @thefryecompany boots and a polka dot shirt from @hm 😁 My earrings are from @katespadeny and my necklace is the personalized bar necklace from my Stella and Dot stylist, @jewelslovely 😊. And that little cutie is my baby girl who always wants to be in the picture! 😂
I am so proud of woolvanknits, winner of best first sweater with her Georgetown Cardigan! She also cast on the Lesley Pullover at the start of our event and finished in time to post another award winning shot! Congratulations, you've won 5 balls of The Petit Wool from We Are Knitters!
BEST HANDSPUN WITH KITTEN
Ok #wewearknitbot fashion show take two! Here is my Lesley sweater knit with some of my own hand spun natural color merino. I am digging the perfect fit and the rustic texture from the hand spun! I love the simplistic everyday knits by #knitbot, perfect for the on the go homeschooling mama of three. Jeans thrifted (loft), a messy high bun and a cute kitten for good measure.
This shot stole my hearts, mega kitten points. But also I love caitlynmacglafin's Lesley Pullover and how she wears it. This is a great design for showing off handspun and this shot proves it. Everything about this scene spells winner to me, congratulations, you've won a $50 A Verb For Keeping Warm Gift Certificate! Enjoy!
BEST LOVED KNIT
Couldn't help but play along with @knitbot 's #wewearknitbot fun. This Featherweight cardi, made back in 2011 is one of my most worn knits. It is a constant reminder that despite being attracted to fancy lace and colourwork it is the simple knits made with beautiful yarn that I actually reach for to wear time and time again. #featherweight cardi made with @theuncommonthread Heavenly fingering, purchased from her Etsy store. Worn with my favourite #wikstentank dress made in #libertylondon lawn, fave old jeans and #duckfeet shoes. ( And apologies for the awkward pose!)
This was an early entry from ali1ali_ and I keep coming back to it. I love that this Featherweight has been part of her wardrobe since 2011, love how she styles it and LOVE that she introduced me to Duck Feet Shoes, they are amazing! Congratulations, you have won the Wool & Wire stitch marker bracelet from Never Not Knitting.
BEST HANDMADE OUTFIT
This is my @knitbot #hancockcardigan from Home & Away for the #wewearknitbot fashion show.

Hancock is knit in @blackeryarns #lyonesse wool & linen blend • #Pianissimo scarf from @pompommag knit in @johnarbontextiles #violayarn • Self-drafted dress in British silk naturally dyed by me with indigo & logwood • Plus colour-coordinated Sheffield-made scissors by @ernestwrightandson & Birmingham-made brooch by @frillyind
There were a number of really great handmade outfits, and this one by englishgirlathome has been named the winner!
