Dear knitters, crocheters, spinners, designers, wannabe designers, this contest is for all of you.
I've been lucky enough to have had some patterns published. I have also submitted patterns that have been rejected. Yes, this rejection category is much more well known to me. I am always looking for places to submit patterns and feel like my personal list is really short.
Which brings me to a plea - I want to write up a big list of places designers can submit patterns to share with our online knitting community. Kind of like Writer's Market for knitters. Except my list will be free to all.
So now is the time to start contributing to the list. And you can win something too.
Rules of the contest:
To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment with one or more sites that accept pattern submissions and a link to your blog (or other way to contact you). Repeat suggestions are okay. All comments must be left starting now through October 6th, 8pm PST. Winner will be chosen by random draw of all participants. You may leave as many comments as you like, but your name will go in the hat just once. Drawing will be held October 7th in the morning. Winner will be announced shortly after.
Prize: Homespun yarn. I do not have a picture of the yarn yet, but one is coming soon. Not that I really have to say this, but homespun yarn is a real treat!
