Q2 Sneak Preview

You’ve got one more week to finish up those Q1 projects and snag that last skein of yarn to get you to the 5 mile mark, but we know many of you are wondering what’s coming next week in Q2 and wanting to plan your purchases.

Q2’s knit-a-long will be a fun one – you can knit (or crochet) any project at all using your team’s mascot! To clarify, this only includes items that actually have the mascot on them, not just the mascot in the name (for example, Cookie A’s famous Monkey socks would not count as a “monkey” project). There so many possibilities for this one that I kind of want to knit something for all the teams (perhaps a special bonus option?). Some ideas for you, which are by no means the only options:

FiberMonkeys – anything with a monkey on it:

Octopurls – anything with an octopus (squid also okay for those of you who don’t feel the need to be technical!):

We’ll be officially kicking off this KAL on Tuesday, April 1st, when we’ll also announce the Q2 challenge. One more hint? If you’ve been thinking about picking up one of our awesome Yarnathon t-shirts, now wouldn’t be a terrible time! (individual team shirts can be found near the bottom of that link)
