THE WINNERS OF
Open mic! (aka: your choice)


Our final competition threw the door open to any character from any story, and we certainly got a wide range: from a middle-aged knitter who dates someone that just happens to be a dragon (sounds like a great book!) to the magnificent, marvellous Madam Mim — and two Sleeping Beauty stories; such a perfect choice, I'm amazed I didn't think of that myself.

Winner: The Dartmoor Scarf
By Regina Williams




Regina picked an unlikely knitter — Sherlock Holmes — and depicted very convincingly how he might have gotten hooked on the cerebral challenges it provides.

Winner: Hansel and Gretel
By Judith Kingston




This story reminded me just how sad the story was... but it is a wonderful, playful design, and provides a happy ending without the cruel mother.

Runner up: How the Northern Lights Got Their Name
By Ellen Boucher




I so enjoyed meeting this spunky, crafty Sleeping Beauty and her tough cookie of a fairy godmother. Clearly royal families would manage far better if they knew their Greek mythology!

Runner up: Sleeping Beauty's Stash Busting Stole
By Catherine Procter




Just the thought of all that accumulated stash, waiting to be revived by the fibre equivalent of a kiss, has me salivating. It also has me considering whether a similar design might work with my own leftovers!
