It's time for our Yarn Ends Challenge! Hope you'll play along!
The challenge began with a great start at the February Tea with many members bringing yarn ends in to swap. We will also be bringing in the left overs to the March meeting if you missed the February tea. Please note that you can use your own yarn ends and send us a photo to be entered into the competition.
Create anything you want, from a coaster to a coat, using primarily your yarn ends.
Bring your final creation to the May Guild meeting to be entered to win a door prize.
If you can't make it to the tea, or to the May meeting, you can still participate using your own yarn ends. Share your creations on your Instagram, Twitter and/or Facebook accounts using the hashtags #mnknitguild & #yarnendschallenge.
Must be a Guild member to win. Don't need to be present at the May meeting to win.
