Hi there! Even though I had very little time during the last year for my knitting patterns, I am proud that I managed to sign in for this year’s Indie Design Gift-A-Long!
For all who don’t yet know what it is: The Indie Design Gift-A-Long on ravelry is a 6 week long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers (like me). From Thursday, November 19th at 8:00 pm US EST – Friday, November 27, 2015 at 11:59 pm US EST tons of indie designers will be discounting between 5 – 20 of their patterns 25% for this event. Use coupon code: giftalong2015. The eligible patterns are mostly for smaller items you can still manage to whip up in time for the gifting season.
You can see a list of all participating designers on this Indie Design Gift-A-Long group page. You can find me on the last page – I haven’t been kidding when I said I was proud and glad that I managed to sign up in time. 😉
If you are interested in which patterns of mine you can use the coupon code on and secure your discount, you can find them all bundled at on ravelry, too.
Once you’ve got your Gift-A-Long patterns, you should join a relevant KAL/CAL in the group on reavelry! (For instance, if it is a shawl, join the cowls, scarfs and other neck things 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!
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.
There are games, tons of prizes, great conversation, and a lot of fun, so pull up a chair and join in!
