BEASTER BUNNY 2011 ~ the competition begins…

The competition is on, folks, and you can be the winner! That’s right, it’s time once again for our annual Carrick Beaster Bunny competition.

To enter, simply leave a comment below with your vote for “Best Beaster Bunny 2011”! One lucky voter will be drawn and will receive ABSOLUTELY FREE his or her choice of Carrick Paperback from our site.

After you cast your vote, be sure to visit Alex’s site for his timely Easter story Revenge of the Beaster Bunny.

Meet this year’s artists: Alex “Paw” Carrick, Donna “Mom”, Ted “The Master”, and Tammy “the Terminator”. It’s a Beasterly line-up indeed! But how to choose the winner from such a selection?

We recommend that you use the time-honoured “checklist & point” system.

Below you will find each work displayed in detail. Simply note key points, and remember, with art, there are no wrong answers. Then leave a comment, letting us know which work most “speaks” to you of beastly hopping!

Contest closes Easter Monday at 6pm EST! At that time, we will put each voter’s name into a hat and announce the winner of a Carrick Paperback!

Crafty Friends ~ Spotlight on Brianna & Tammy-Li

Crafty friend Brianna L., newest member of circle!

At Thematic Stitchings, we’re all about bringing new crafters into the fold! So imagine our excitement when we discover a new young talent to join our circle!

Meet Brianna L., the latest knitter to join our break-time circle! Brianna’s Dad brought her into the office a couple of weeks ago, and she was thrilled to share her love for knitting with us. Brianna’s Mom has been teaching her the 2-needled craft, so she was able to show the ladies what she’d learned.

Tammy is knitting a scarf for me!

Tammy-Li has been watching me knit for years. Finally, this year, she decided to give the needles a try. While I worked on this lovely lilac Easter sweater, Tammy-Li has been getting the hang of the yarn by making me a scarf to match my skating sweater!

Knitting is fun!

Both Brianna and Tammy are at the beginning stages, where crafting requires more patience than skill. However, we hope they will keep it up! So many happy hours can be spent creating beautiful fabrics — I can’t help but smile thinking of them both as grown ladies, remembering how they learned to knit!

Let's find Easter Eggs!

Keep up the good work, girls!

Cable & Rib pattern sits nice and flat

Notice how flat and smooth the back of the sweater lies, despite the use of a ribbed stitch!
