Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2016 #GGKCRAFTYPAD

What is #GGKCRAFTYPAD? It's a monthly photo a day challenge. The hashtag stands for Geeky Girls Knit Crafty Photo A Day challenge. We give you a prompt, you take a photo and share it. Most of our prompts tend to be related to craftiness but we've done others as well. For example, the February prompts list was themed alphabet soup using a different letter of the alphabet for each day. March's prompts list is colour themed.

What's a crafty selfie? It's a picture of yourself (with others or by yourself) doing something crafty. Maybe it's showing off a recent handknit. Or enabling us with your latest yarn purchase. Or having a wee break to knit before you start shopping again. However you want to interpret crafty selfie is fine by us, just convince us. :) (and we're pretty easy to convince!)

So, how do you participate???? Simply take your photo and post it to Instagram with the hashtags #GGKEYF16craftyselfie #GGKCraftyPAD and #EYF2016. By adding the hashtags, others who are participating will be able to see the pictures that have been shared for the prompt. C.C. is on Instagram as cc_almon & Dami is on Instagram as d_isabitgroovy so make sure to follow them if you haven't already.

PRIZES - So what about these prizes? We will utilise a random number generator to select winners who have posted on Instagram a picture that matches the theme and who have tagged the picture with the tags #GGKEYF16craftyselfie #GGKCRAFTYPAD and #EYF2016. If your photo is selected, C.C. will comment on your photo asking you to contact her via Ravelry so she can get your prize to you.

We'll be in the Podcast Lounge as well as in the JavaPurl Designs / KnitRunDig booth, so come by and say hi! Can't wait to see your photos!

And we'd love for you to participate in the rest of the month of March if you want to. You can find the March prompts list here: here.

Happy Knitting!
