Celebrate Color - A Craft-Along of Epic Proportions (with Prizes!)

This is a public service announcement to all my textile-crafty friends,

If you knit, crochet, sew, quilt, or embroider you need (I'm not joking - some things are needs, not wants) to get yourself over to Stitched in Color for the Celebrate Color extravaganza. In honour of the beautiful colours* of autumn, Rachel of Stitched in Colour, Emma Lamb, Mollie of Wild Olive, and Shannon of luvinthemommyhood got together to create this fantastic internet craft party. Write a blog post to show off your beautiful work, link your fall-colour-inspired projects up to the category they fit best into, and share the love!

Celebrate Color is also the home of some truly fantastic prizes. Dont believe me?

Exhibit 1; October's yarn category: Interested in a Jordana Paige bag? Maybe a kit from Tanis Fiber Arts? How about an entire KnitPicks Zephyr interchangeable needle set, or a tester set of each of their interchangeable lines? Or perhaps a skein of yarn and a pattern from me, Em of Everything Old? Maybe some Cashmerino sport from Sweet Fiber? These prizes are being split between two lucky winners this month.

Can we just all take a moment to say holy crap, and then cast on something awesome?

There are three more categories of unbelievably cool and generous prizes.

Just go. Grab a blog button, drum up some enthusiasm from your crafty friends, and Celebrate Color!

*Just so you know, I'm completely aware that I'm flip-flopping on Canadian/American spelling of "colour" - but I'm stuck. I spell it correctly, for me, but then the actual event is American and... let's just be forgiving yes?
