Meet our winner

BostonBoston, a 44-year-old social worker from Wheeling, has been knitting since she was 25 years old.
After seeing the entry about the contest in The Wheeling News-Register, Boston decided to give it a chance. Her "Whoooo Wants a Cuppa?” winning entry was her first attempt at knitting a tea cozy.
“I love tea and love to knit,” she said. “A tea cozy has always been an item I have intended to knit as I drink a pot every morning and am forever covering it up with a clean tea towel. The project also proved a welcome distraction from the COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions.”
Boston has been drinking tea longer than she has been knitting.

These are all of the entries from this years competition. Voting is closed, but be sure to check back for our next competition.
