Ra's photo (KIP - Knitting In Public)

KnitSpeak has received the photo below from Ra as our next submission in the competition. Here we have another variation on knitting in public.

Apparently, the photo was taken at Welford Road, home of the Leicester Tigers Rugby Union Club, before kick off on Friday night. Ra said that the match wasn't as good as the knitting as there was a bad-tempered draw, two players sent off and two sin binned (one of each from each team)! Many thanks, Ra, for submitting this great photo!

We've had such wonderful photos, I think it's going to be really difficult to choose a winner! Anyway, if you still wish to enter, you'd better get your skates on, guys, because the deadline has now been set for the end of October. There is good news, too, in that Kerrie of Hip Knits has noticed the KnitSpeak competition whilst blog browsing and has very generously offered to share the cost of the Hip Knits silk with me so this means that instead of 300g of silk for the winner, the prize will now be 200g from Kerrie and 200g from me making enough for a full size clapotis! Not only that but Kerrie has also offered to custom dye the silk to the winner's choice of colourway. Isn't that fantastic!? Thank you very much, Kerrie!

So, get those cameras clicking, folks. Remember, you can submit a photo to illustrate any of the terms in the list and you are allowed as many entries as you like. If someone else has submitted a photo for a particular term, that doesn't stop you from submitting one, too, as long as no one person submits photos for the same term more than once.

Thanks also to Beverley for sending me some new terms to add to the KnitSpeak list. I will mention these in my next post and add them to the list. KnitSpeak is always glad to receive new acronyms and terminology, etc, to add to its list as preserving these for posterity is what it's all about!
