Happy May Day! May Day celebrations have roots in pagan rituals and the movement for workers' rights. For me this day symbolizes spring, fertility, the International Workers' Day and political demonstrations. We're headed to our annual May Day celebration where the festivities include a picnic, sack races, a couple games of pull-for-peace (the pacifist version of tug-of-war) and a traditional Maypole dance.
To mark the occasion I'm running a contest. Leave a comment here and tell us what you're knitting these days. I'm always looking at patterns, and your comments might highlight a design I haven't stumbled across yet. The winner, chosen at random, will receive a skein of yarn from Dirty Water DyeWorks - winner's choice. The contest closes on Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
If you're headed to Maryland Sheep & Wool this weekend, you'll find a selection of yarn from Dirty Water DyeWorks in the Spin-A-Bit booth - Main Exhibition Hall, B8. Be sure to take a look at the Spin-A-Bit fibers while you're there. I would love to go to Maryland but having my yarn there is the next best thing.
