March Madness Knit A Long (KAL) - check out the prizes

Here in Indiana, March means lots of basketball. Whether it be high school or college, it’s tournament time, and that means lots of knitting time. And if you aren’t a basketball fan, maybe its a good time to finish up some WIPs or just celebrate the changing seasons through knitting. So I’m launching my first Knit A Long (KAL) - with prizes!

Just pick any Verdigris Knits design and post a pic of the finished object in your projects on Ravelry before April 3, 2012.  You can work the pattern as written, mix and match pieces, or just use a part as inspiration.

Please spread the word.  There are some great prizes, including 3 skeins (1200 m total) of some heavenly Fyberspates 100% lace weight yarn in colorway Leprechaun.

This yarn is so beautiful I just like to hang it around the house like jewelry for the doors!

The colorway is especially appropriate for March, no?


Other prizes include:

A new copy of the book Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec - some of the cutest little projects eva (and I ordered 2 copies by mistake)

A copy of my soon to be released e-book - Magic Cowls and scarfs.

A bag of soap nuts (all natural laundry detergent that is great for felting too)

And I'll throw in some of my other patterns if we get more than 25 participants.
Here's how to play along:

Any Verdigris Knits Design is eligible, even the complimentary ones. Projects need to be finished by April 3, 2012. One chance per project.  WIPs already in progress are eligible.

To be sure to have your project counted, post your project on your Ravelry notebook and link it to the appropriate Verdigris Knits Designs Pattern.  Tag your project marchmadnessKAL.

Of course, please consider joining in the discussion in the Verdigris Knits Group KAL thread and post photos there as well,  that’s fun for all.

  1. Great idea and I'm about to start the cowl pattern so once I figure out how to link it I'll be joining in.
