DO YOU LOVE COLORWORK?
WE HAVE A CONTEST FOR YOU
We created our Little Stubbies colorways based on extensive research of the 2020 fall color fashion trends. We have found that while most people love the colors individually, putting them together has most scratching their heads.
So we decided to have a contest.
Most knit-a-longs are developed from a designer perspective. They create the pattern and give you general information about the yarn used. In many cases, they have a collaboration with a dyer to provide sets for the pattern.
We decided to change that up a bit. You get the yarn, and pick the kind of work you want to do! Hate neo-mint? Make it an accent color. You can use as much or as little as you want. The main rule is you need to use all of the colors.
OK I WANT MORE INFO
Here’s what you need to know:
- Pre-order of the Little Stubbies Set.
- You can pre-order your set in any weight you would like.
- We will dye the sets and have them ready by December 1st to ship out or pick up.
- Since December is usually a busy season, take the time to figure out your project. You can knit, crochet, macrame, needle punch, weave, rug hook, make a sculpture with glue and yarn. Whatever you choose as long as you use all the colors.
- The contest will officially begin in January.
- Submit your final project to us by February 28th, 2020.
- In March we will have a party to have the community vote on the pieces they think should win.
- Maybe Win!

ARE YOU INTRIGUED YET? LET’S TALK ABOUT COLORS
Little Stubbies comes in six colorways:
The Pink Couch, Royal, Neo-Mint, Tumeric, Red Earth, and Earth Brown. We think they work very well together, but to make it even better we added…
A Mama Skein to keep all those puppies together
AWESOME BUT WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER DETAILS?
The Little Stubbies line comes in three weights. Sock, DK, and Worsted. The weights are indicated by the cute little stubby puppies above. You get to choose your set of the same weights when you preorder!

I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS, THOUGH…
We may already have the answers let’s see!
What are the dates?
November 1st, 2019 – Preorder your yarn sets
December 1st, 2019 – Sets will be ready for mailing or pick up
January 1st, 2020 – Contest Begins
February 28th, 2020 – All submissions need to be received to Hearts On Fiber along with the entry form.
Can I enter if I’m not local?
Of course, you can! You will be responsible for shipping your finished product to us, but there’s no reason why you can’t use your creative juices to win!
Can I really make anything?
Yep, anything. This is not limited to one fiber art. It can be all of them. Remember the rule is you have to use all the colors.
How will the work be judged?
By the community! We will hold a party in March with all the work displayed. Each work will have a number. Attendees will vote on their first choice. (This party’s going to be fun too, just wait!)
What are the weights and yardage?
I can’t go through math again. Scroll up for all the yardage!
What happens to my work when the contest is done?
Once the contest is over you can pick up your work or we can mail it back to you. If you are one of the 3 winners we will display it in our shop for the month of March and April. You can pick it up at the end of April
How long do I have?
The contest officially starts on January 1st, but you can get to work before then. All yarn will be available in sets by December 1st. You have until the end of February to get your project to us. If mailing it, you want to keep that in consideration.
What’s the price?
Oh, the price… We forgot about that! All sets will be $100 plus tax. You will pre-pay with the preorder.
Do I have to enter to get the yarn?
Not really, I don’t know how much fun that would be but you can if you want to. 🙂
Can I use someone else’s pattern?
Yep, when you fill out the entry form there will be a location for all the information about your work. You can give the credit to the designer at that time.
Do I have to make up the piece?
Nope, you can if you want to, but you don’t have to.
Can I use other yarn or embellishments?
We want you to use all of the yarn, but if you want a pom-pom, or some beads or buttons, we completely understand. Please don’t use anyone else’s yarn though. That is sad.
Can I buy more yarn if I need it for an individual color?
Yes! We have all the yarn colorways as singles as well!
