The Knitting and Stitching Show has a fun competition this year.  I lifted this from their site:

Twistedthread invites you to enter The Knitted Farm Competition in conjunction with 'Knit Your Own Farm' by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne, published by Pavilion. Four knitting patterns from the book (cow, pig, sheep and lamb) are available to download by scrolling down and clicking on the links below. But we do welcome all additional farm animals too, all we ask is that they fit with the scale of the four animals below. For advice on scale please call 020 7688 6830.

Buy your copy of 'Knit Your Own Farm' for onyl £10 including free P&P (RRP: £12.99). Order from and enter discount code FARM2015 at the checkout.

Prizes will be offered for the most innovative and best executed knitted item. Judging will take place on Wednesday 4th March 2015. Fabulous prizes are provided by Black Sheep Wools.

Prizes are:

1st prize: £200 in vouchers to spend with Black Sheep Wools*.
