Yarnival is a blog carnival, which is a collection of blog entries by people from all over the world. In this case, the online magazine type website is a place where knitters can showcase the content of their knitting blogs.
The first issue of Yarnival! includes blog entries about spinning, dyeing, works in progress, finished objects and techniques. Some of these are:
- cats and knitting
- what makes a person a knitter
- review of knitting needles
- knitting patterns on an iPod
Yarnival was started by Eve who is acting as the editor for the first issue. The idea for the blog carnival stemmed from her obsession of reading knitting blogs. She reads over 80 per day. Eve wanted to showcase some of these blogs while exposing lesser know blogs to readers.
Submission of blog entries for the second issue are being taken until September 15, 2006. Entries should be knitting or spinning content that represents the best written within the past month or two. Entries that are original work, witty or insightful commentary, and have pretty pictures are considered the best type of entries.
