Thank you to everyone who sent in nominations for the Readers' Choice Awards this year. We had a lot of great nominees and I've narrowed down each category to five great finalists. These awards to some extent show the power of social media because there's at least one finalist in one of the categories that I'd actually never heard of before seeing on the list.
Without further ado, the rules: you can vote once per category per 24-hour period, and votes are being verified by requiring you to sign in with Facebook or use your e-mail address (that's a pain, I know, but it's to help prevent fraud). Voting opens Feb. 19 and goes through the end of the day March 19. Winners will be announced March 27. There are no prizes other than the satisfaction of knowing that people like you!
Here's where you can vote:
- Favorite Knitting Blog/Website
- Favorite Knitwear Designer
- Favorite Knitting Book of 2012
- Favorite Yarn Company
- Favorite Needle Brand
I look forward to seeing how the voting shakes out. Please share this on your social networks, let the people involved know you voted for them, and come back and vote often! Thanks so much for your participation.
