The Knitting Game

  • What/How I got the idea: Here is the explanation about how I got the idea and the general rules.
  • Why: To give me the opportunity to broaden my knitting knowledge using the resources I already have on hand.
  • Who: I’ll be sharing and initiating the week’s patterns and voting, but if you want to follow along or start your own knitting game.   Go for it, and let me know so I can let folks know what you’re up to and how to vote on your projects.
  • When: I plan to record The Knitting Game and Other Stuff on Thursdays and post the new podcasts on Saturday.  So the voting for the round’s patterns will be open from Saturday through Thursdays since I will announce the round winner and next weeks new pattern on the podcast.
  • Where: I will post the patterns to My Ordinary Journey and to our Ravelry Group
