Knitter Challenges? Tell me about it!


This is a simple Factbook game, meant to bring knitters together, challenge our creativity.... and share a good time!


So.. how does it work?


Every two weeks, Animate a Tejer –our local iniciative in Latin America to promote leisure knitting- proposes a guideline for the Knitter Challenge: a specific piece of garment and a theme, to create a unique design from that. Once the garment is ready, send us a couple of pictures... we will upload it to our facebook profiles (Abuelita Yarns and Animate a Tejer) and it is ready to win the Challenge!!!


The two first challenges have been presented to latin america, with much excitment form our knitters... so we want to share it with you too!!


We have now three winners: the most voted design from Uruguay –our home!-, the most voted from Latinamerica, and the most voted from Europe, USA, Oceania, Asia, and the outer space!


How to vote?

·        FACEBOOK: check the picture albums

o       "TERECER DESAFIO TEJEDOR" in Animate a Tejer profile
