  • Too bad ignoring instructions and blithely knitting along any old how is not considered design or I would be a sure winner. This should be a lot of fun.

  • I loved Teeny Project Runway (and – is this sad? – still have my design submission and my cast-iron model on somewhat dusty display here at home) but the Fiber Factor may be beyond my farthest knitting-challenge horizon. I get the feeling it would require me to not only design but to actually knit something bigger than a sock. However, I will be an interested observer! And will cheer on the participants!!

  • Too bad ignoring instructions and blithely knitting along any old how is not considered designing. Guess I will be watching with interest from the sidelines.

  • I’m sorry…were you saying something? I can’t get past the photo!

  • I don’t wanna sound like Debbie Downer here, but as a native and resident German (living in Munich) I feel like this is the least exciting first price I’ve ever heard of. But that may just be me…. 😉

  • As long as none of the contestants are on camera in their magenta man briefs, I’ll watch.

  • Yeah, I’m with Amanda. . .
    but seriously, I’ll watch, because I don’t do any knitting to a deadline! The challenges could be fun on their own terms, though, so I look forward to seeing what they are.

  • The contest is only open to continental U.S residents… Bummer…

  • I’d just like to spend time with members of that phenomenal list of judges!

  • I’m going to check it out. I haven’t designed anything (on purpose at least), but that is mostly because when it comes to knitting projects I am like a ferret with a thousand shiny bouncing balls. Maybe this would be the kick in the pants I need to be serious. Or maybe I’ll look at the application and decide it is to crazypants for me at this stage in my life.

  • This sounds intriguing, but I know what I look (and sound) like under knitting pressure, and the combination of bed head/pajamas plus swearing is not what I want anyone else to see! : )

  • I am loving these comments! 🙂

  • Can one tour the Addi factory? They only sell wholesale & couldn’t even give me the name of a store that sold the needles. I have some German connections & they have yet to find a source for them! Pity for me!

  • I saw this yesterday, not a designer at all, but will hope to watch, especially if you remind us when something happens!!

  • It’s a testament to the creativity of Ms Madon & Ms Dixon that at first I thought it was a spoof; then thought it was a M-D contest. But as I read on I began to think it *could* be real…. Clearly this is the best Blog in the Sphere!!

  • Oh, my. Oh. Oh, my.

  • I love it! 🙂

  • That sounds so cool. Thank you so much for posting about this on your blog. Still can’t belive it is real. I’m totally appyling.
