Q1 Kitty Picks


This year, we thought we would try a little something new: Kitty Picks! For each quarterly KAL, the ESK Kitties each have a prize to give away that relates to their position at ESK. Erin, as the owner, will give away yarn, Lindsay, as Shipping Queen, will give away a free shipping coupon, etc. We will all pick our favorite project and give our prize to that knitter! You all made this very difficult with all your amazing projects but, alas, here are our final selections:


Prize: Feature your project on ESK’s social media

Pick: sweetbirchdesigns The Moroccan Spice Market
Why? I just can’t get over her color combination: Esoteric, Mineral, Oscuro, Cardinal, Weathered Fram, The Fox, & Havana!




Prize: Skein of yarn

Pick: tsukichan33’s All Paths Lead Home
Why? I’m a sucker for a gradient and this one is absolutely lovely!




Prize: 3 stars for your team

Pick: nest31shop’s Pop Rocks, You’re So Damn Beautiful
Why? It’s incredibly striking in the beloved Pop Rocks (RIP)! Not everyone can pull off that color and it must’ve been so fun to knit with such a happy color!




Prize: Custom illustration based on your Ravelry profile

Pick: elloknits Drachenfels
Why? There were several beauties that I want in my closet, but I would wear this one with absolutely anything and feel cool & fashion-y for doing it. I might even go so far as to actually knit one myself!




Prize: Glamor-shot of your favorite yarn

Pick: twitch’s a series of fortunate stitches
Why? I love the colors she chose for this, it reminds me of some hiking adventures I’ve been on!





Prize: Free shipping coupon

Pick: vivakelly’s My Headache
Why? It’s so elegant with fun mixed in. I would wear this every day!




Prize: Free shipping coupon

Pick: JoyOfSaturn’s Void Citron
Why? I love this color! It feels like Spring.





Prize: 1,500 yards

Pick: ginni’s Transmute
Why? I can’t say no to a Breton!




If your project was picked by an ESK Kitty, please e-mail us at trivia@eatsleepknit.com. We will need your ESK username and, depending on the prize, some other information. We hope you enjoyed this designer-specific KAL. Thanks to everyone who knitted-a-long and submitted their projects!
