It’s time for the annual Vanna’s Choice Contest!

To enter all you need to do is knit, crochet or create a craft using any yarn from our Vanna collections: Vanna’s Choice®, Vanna’s Choice® Baby,  Vanna’s Glamour®, and Vanna’s Sequins.

Use your imagination! It can be anything you dream up — from “Gramminal” hat and bootie sets (which took last year’s Grand Prize, made by Nancy Nielsen), to a Christmas-themed chess set (Aiqi Huang’s winning entry from 2011).

There are 20 prizes to win, including the Grand Prize: a trip for two to meet Vanna White in Los Angeles!

Entries can be submitted into one of four categories:

  • Hats and Scarves
  • Baby items
  • Afghans, Blankets and Throws
  • Other

Celebrate color with Vanna White yarns – enter now!

*Note: restricted to residents in the US and Canada (excluding Quebec). One entry per person. See here for the complete rules.

    How awesome– thank you for so many giveaways for so many <3

  • Carole

    Does it have to be an original pattern/design?

    • Toni s.

      Wondering the same thing!

    • TxDweller

      All that is covered in rules, must be an original piece. Read complete rules, click link above.

    • Devin

      You can submit a project that has been made using someone else’s pattern. However, the winner will be chosen based on creativity and originality so you’ll have a better chance of winning if you create your own.

    When using a gauge frame to measure a needle size, is the correct size of the needle when the point of the needle stops, or slides through nicely?

    • Devin

      When using a gauge frame, if the needle slides through easily with very little extra space around it that is the correct size. If the needle gets stuck and can’t go all the way through then you need to go a size up.

        Thank you…….I was right, but doubted.
