Here are the details for your first quarterly challenge and knit(craft!)-a-long:
The Q1 knit-a-long (KAL) is the New-to-You knit-a-long. And just to clarify, all fiber-related crafts are welcome, knit-a-long just has an easy ring to it, so don’t be shy!
1. Your project should use a craft technique that is new to you, one you’ve maybe wanted to try but never gotten around to or something you’ve tried but just couldn’t get into. Some examples might be: colorwork, socks, a sweater, entrelac, or heck even just knitting if you’re a new knitter. Anything goes; the idea is to challenge yourself to learn/enjoy something new!
2. Your project should be cast on and cast off between January 1 and March 31st, 2014.
3. Your project should use yarn or fiber from Eat.Sleep.Knit.
Each person who completes a qualifying project during the knit-a-long will be awarded 1000 yards towards their individual Yarnathon totals! (Limit one prize per customer.)
On March 31st, we’ll open a voting thread where you can post your finished projects. Two winners will receive $20 gift certificates!
Q1 Team Challenge: Reach the 5 mile marker in the Yarnathon! The team that gets the most team members to the 5 mile marker by March 31st will be awarded two extra points towards their team total at the end of the year. You’ll also earn a $20 store credit on your way to this goal, so really, everybody wins!
