Yes, I know I’ve been as quiet as a church mouse lately, but for good reason. The third annual Indie Design Gift-a-long begins in just 2 days!
What is Gift-A-Long? It’s a multi-designer promotion to help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear!
The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 6 week long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers. This year we have 335 participating indie designers! Starting this Thursday, November 19th at 8:00 pm US EST – Friday, November 27, 2015 at 11:59 pm US EST our 2015 indie designers will be discounting between 5 – 20 of their patterns 25% for this event.
Once you’ve got your Gift-A-Long patterns, we encourage you to join a relevant KAL/CAL! (For instance, if it is a cowl, please join the cowl KAL/CAL.) To join, simply write a post in the KAL/CAL thread you want to join, including the pattern name you will be knitting and a link to your project page. KAL/CAL participants are eligible for lots of lovely prizes but you gotta post to win! (Note: all patterns -both paid-for and free – by the 2015 indie designers are eligible for the KAL/ CAL threads and all paid-for patterns are eligible to win prizes in our yarn-tastic games! To be included, make sure to wait to start crafting or your Ravelry project pages until Thursday November 19th at 8:00pm.)
KAL/CALs will run from Thursday, November 19th at 8pm (US-EST) through our New Years Eve party, Thursday, December 31 at midnight (US-EST), plenty of time to knock out all your holiday knitting and crocheting. We have games, tons of prizes, great conversation, and a lot of fun, so pull up a chair and join us!
