Contest Alert

The annual Philadelphia Area Knit Out and Crochet Event is scheduled for Sunday, September 18, at the Convention Center (12th and Arch), and this year there's an added feature: a scarf contest.

To publicize the American Heart Association's current campaign for women's heart health awareness, Go Red for Women, the Knit Out is sponsoring a Go Red Scarf Contest. To enter, knit or crochet a scarf--your own original design--in any shade of red, and bring it to the Knit Out. The winners will be announced at 4:30, and each of 4 runners-up will receive goodies like signed copies of Scarf Style, gift certificates, and knitting accessories. The winner will receive a library of 5 Interweave Press knitting titles, plus publication of her/his scarf pattern on Interweave Knits' website.

Two important things to know: you must be present at 4:30 to win, and all entries become the property of the Knit Out, and will be donated to the American Heart Association.

There's still plenty of time; surely there's a pattern idea you've been looking for an opportunity to try out? Go to it!

What is the Heart Association going to do with the scarves? I know they will auction off the winners to raise money, but what will happen to the other entries?
Will they sell/auction them to raise money(good) give them to needy people (also good) or will they end up in a box in an office some where or around the neck of a Heart Association Employee?

Does any one know?

Not a clue, but I'll pass the question on to someone who should know.
