Instagram Challenge

January Instagram Challenge: Our Favorites!

by Grace Bonney

This month’s Instagram Challenge (Declarations of Love!) is already underway, but last month’s just wrapped up, and today I’m excited to share the seriously impressive results! Before I present the finalists (and our winning three), I wanted to say how insanely talented you guys are. Really, you took this knitting challenge to heart, and it was a home run. I cannot wait to see what you have for this month’s love theme. Thanks so much to everyone who entered and to Lion Brand Yarn for donating $25 gift cards and skeins of yarn to our three winners*! (Stay tuned, we’ll be sharing the full DIY steps for several of these projects soon!) xo, grace
