Every year around the end of June, I am amazed at how the time flies. I’m sure next year I’ll be saying exactly the same, it’s just – July? is on Tuesday?
Which means the close of Q2 and the start of our 3rd quarter of Yarnathon events! We’ve got plenty of housekeeping to catch up on for Q2, but in the mean time, we know that you probably want to get started planning your Q3 projects and purchases, so a preview for you, and a coupon:
Q3 Knit-A-Long – Oldie But Goodie
We’ve all got at least one, probably dozens. That pattern that you favorited or added to your queue years ago, the one that always seems to be the project you’ll get to “right after I finish up these other two things,” falling ever farther down your list but never quite out of your mind. This knit-a-long is for you, beloved old pattern.
For Q3, we challenge you to pick a pattern that you added to your queue or your favorites during your first year as an active Raveler. Something you always come back to but still haven’t gotten around to yet. If you’re not sure, when you visit your Ravelry queue or your favorites, it will show you the date you added an item – for me, my first year is 2007/2008, but use the first year you started favoriting/queueing things on Ravelry!
Other requirements: As always, all yarn must be from Eat Sleep Knit to be eligible for prizes. Project must be started and completed within the third quarter (July 1-Sept 30). Projects should use a minimum of 200 yards.
Need yarn? We’ve got a special offer for you – place your knit-a-long order between now and July 13th and specify in the comments field which yarn is for your project, and we’ll take 10% off for that yarn. Adjustments will have to be made manually so this discount won’t show up at checkout, but we will e-mail you to confirm.
