Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting - by Lorna Miser, founder of Lorna's Laces.  

from Random House:

Quote
Knitting the Way of Love

In Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting, Lorna Miser celebrates her passion for
knitting as a wonderful, exciting gift from God. Because its so much a
part of who she is, Lorna knits virtually everywhere she goesbut it isnt
about using her time productively. Knitting gives her something far more
precious than anything she can make with yarn and needles: a way to
express her faith and love for others, and the blessings that have come
from the priceless connections shes made with people. Each person has
been at the right place at the right time, for a reasonand Lorna has been
there, knitting, with a story to tell or an ear to lend, also for a reason.
In this book Lorna shares twenty-four of her most memorable stories,
each inspiring a beautiful knitting project. Join Lorna as she visits with
friends and family, laughs and sometimes criesall while knitting.

You can find a excerpt available here, too.

Nope.  If you're ready to submit your entry, you can go back to the main challenge board (here), select "New Topic" and post there.

Your item needs to be primarily knitted.  You can use crochet for edgings, etc but the majority of your item needs to be knitted.
