Hello, My lovelies,

It's been a while since you've heard from me, but I wanted to remind you all

Maine's Fastest Knitter Race

It's right around the corner!

I hope you've all been training for the big event.



The 2018 Maine's Fastest Knitter Race will be on Thursday, August 2 at 4:00 PM. Knitter's who would like to compete for the title should gather at the North Entertainment Tent at around 3:30 to get your racing numbers, swatches and seats. This year I'm altering the rules a bit. 

New Rules, 2018

First, I know some of you have wanted to be allowed to use different needles. In the interest of fairness, we've all been using the same set-ups. But, this year, 2018, you can bring your own favorite needles. Think you can do better on circulars or metals? Try it, and welcome. I'll still provide the swatches and a set of needles for those who want them. If you want to try your own needles, I'll transfer the swatch to your needles before the first heat.


Second, if I am not mistaken, Andrea Gaylor has been Maine's Fastest Knitter for four years in a row now. Though some of you have come heartbreakingly close, she has managed to edge out the competition. In the interest of fairness and variety, 2018 will be the start of Term Limits. Five consecutive wins will be the limit. If someone else beats Andrea this year, she can start her clock over again next year.

If you can, please let me know if you're planning on competing this year so I can have the right number of swatches on hand. The old email address still works.

Can't wait to see you all!
