T-4 Days until Oceanic is underway! Are you all set with your supplies? The MKAL chat thread is up and running on the Knit Eco Chic group on Ravelry. Jump aboard and show off your yarn! Did you order fresh supplies or are you stashing down? I’m looking forward to seeing what colors you selected for your Oceanic shawl.
The physical prize for this MKAL is donated by MagpieLaneCrafts‘ Janet (Janchuck). With the current knitting craze demanding bling on your needles, Jan put together a make your own stitch marker starter kit! Jan’s awesome prize will be awarded by random selection to one lucky winner from the FO thread at the conclusion of the MKAL.
This starter kit includes everything you need to start crafting your own stitch markers – an organized carrying case filled with rings, charms, and other goodies as well as a set of pliers. Thanks, Jan!
Electronic prizes will also be awarded during the MKAL cycle. Check in the chat thread each Thursday for a “Secret Underwater Caves” trivia question. Submit your answer via PM to me by Friday morning 9 am EST. The trivia questions will relate to either Knit Eco Chic, The Unique Sheep, Magpie Lane Crafts, or the Ocean. Only answers from MKAL particpants (see below) received via Ravelry PM will be valid. That’s right, no posting your guess in the chat thread! Each Friday, Puddles will bravely dive into the deep and randomly select one correct answer from the guesses submitted and that guesser will win a coupon code for a pattern of their choice from my shop!
Not signed up for the MKAL yet? It’s easy – just order your Oceanic pattern and join us on the chat thread! And if you purchase the pattern before the start date (August 8th) you’ll receive the pre-sail sale (yep, I’m punny) discount of $1 off.
Over the next few days there won’t be much from me on social media (SM) as I’ll be working on last minute MKAL items, none of which I can share until Monday. But I do love hearing from you, so feel free to drop me an email or poke on SM. ‘Til August 8th, this is your diving instructor, diving down and under!
