Knitalongs and Giveaways

I talk about the Knit Knosh Along and review the rules

Here’s how it will work:

The KAL will run from January 26, 2016 to April 1, 2016.

During that period, you can earn points for the KAL in the following way:

  1. Cast on new project with yarn from Bijou Basin Ranch, MJ Yarns, Knerd or Skeindalous (10 points).

  2. Knit something with the samples from the event! There are some great ideas on Instagram if you look at #knitknosh on Instagram (5 points)

  3. FINISH a project knit with yarn from one of the sponsor companies (25 points) sorry, the samples don’t count for this category!

  4. Use a Modular Modular project bag to with a newly cast on project (10 points)

  5. Knit with one of the patterns that was gifted at the event, the Apishapa Hat or the Bijou Creek Cowl or the Popin Stars Cowl (designed to use MJ Yarns or Skeindalous Yarn!) (5 points)

  6. Post photos of your project on Instagram and tag it #knitknosh (1 point per photo)

  7. Post photos of ANY project in your project bag from Knitknosh, tag it #knitknosh (1 point per photo)

So here are some an examples… if I cast on a Bijou Creek Cowl (5 points) with some MJ Yarn (10 points), and use my Modular Modular bag (10 points), finish it by April 1 (25 points) and post 3 photos of it, tagged #knitknosh, that would be 53 points!

If I cast on a project using my Knit Knosh samples (5 points), and posted 4 pictures of it on Instagram, tagged #knitnosh, that would be 9 points!

I’ll open a KAL Finish Line thread where you can post your progress and keep track of your points !

I’ll post photos of the prizes this week! I have
One Skein of Bijou Basin Ranch Lhasa Wilderness Sport in Teal
One Skein of MJ Yarns Silken DK in Phoenix
One Skein of Knerd String Merino DK in Sunrise
One Skein of Skeindalous Anna in Come Along Pond
A small project bag from Modular Modular

I hope this will be a lot of fun!!
