A Folkcat First – a Contest!

Filed under: Retired - Folkcat's Fiber Crafts — folkcat at 8:53 pm on Thursday, August 25, 2005

No pictures today. I’ve been knitting, yes. But do you really need a picture to see that Wearable Hug 11 is now 1/3 done? Or that I’ve done 4 more rows of the “Wings of the Cat” shawl, making a total of 9 rows completed?

I think not.

So the main news is that I continue to steadily progress on both projects. I’m also considering casting on for the second sock of Sock Experiment 4 (SE4), so that eventually I’ll have a second complete pair of socks I knit for myself to wear. It would also be something that works on needles smaller than the broomsticks (size 13) I use for the Wearable Hugs, and something not as complex as the lacy maze that is “Wings of the Cat”.

In a cross-crafting story, I was so pleased with my beaded stitch markers that I sat down to make a couple more today.

I may start selling these stitch markers. Anyone have any thoughts as to the number to put in a set? I’ve been making sets of 4, which seems reasonable to me. But as long as I have the beads, I can make sets any size I like.

Oooh, I know…I can make this a contest! Submit your comments answering the following questions:

  1. How many stitch markers make a set?
  2. What would be a fair price to charge for that set?

The contest will run until….let’s say, midnight Sunday. Only one entry per person, please – if you comment more than once, it will only count as one. And only entries made via the comment screen will count. If you e-mail me your answers, I’ll still appreciate the input, but no one else can benefit from the discussion then.

On Monday, I’ll draw randomly from the entries. The winner will get to pick two sets of bead markers from the dozen sets shown here:

There are closer looks at the sets here.

If you have any other thoughts to add about what makes a set of beaded stitch markers something that you would buy, feel free to add those to your comment.

I haven’t conducted a contest on any of my blogs before. This is going to be fun! Thanks for reading here, and thanks in advance for your input!
