While Alexa and I don’t advocate baby pageants, we do love baby photos… the more ridiculous the better, why take babies too seriously?!
As we knit our way through Max & Bodhi’s Wardrobe, we thought it was a perfect time to pull out the baby photos, and we want to see yours too! So we’re having a fabulous baby + knits photo contest on Instagram… starting now, and ending at the end of day Sunday, April 12th.
TO ENTER… simply post a photo on Instagram that’s about baby + knitting (you need to have an account, but setting one up is easy and free), and tag it @tincanknits and #TCKbabyshow. If you want, you can post more than one! It doesn’t have to have an actual baby in it (you can just post your knits), but we love to see their chubby little faces. Children are adorable too, it doesn’t have to be JUST wee babes.
CATEGORIES… Emily and Alexa will be the judges! With 4 babies between us, we consider ourselves experts in the field of baby and knit related hilarity. We’ll select winners in the following categories, and share them on the blog next week!
- Most Hilarious
- Classically Adorable
- Best Vintage Baby Knit (pull out those old photos of you in scratchy woollies!)
- Best in Show… our all-round favourite photo from the bunch!
PRIZES… WE LOVE PRIZES… There’ll be 2 yarn prizes, and 3 book prizes, so post your fav photos now!
1. 2 skeins of Supersweet Sock from Sweet Fiber in ‘Sea Glass’
2. 2 skeins of Purple Label Cashmere Sock from Tanis Fiber Arts
3 and 4. An ecopy of Max and Bodhi’s Wardrobe
To get your creative juices flowing, here are a few that Alexa and I picked to set the mood…
