Yippee Q3!


It’s July and you know what that means – fireworks, BBQs, and Q3 with your favorite kitties! Q2 was the quarter of challenges…from making up Unicorn Tails Bundles to CandyCat – we really had a blast! Now that we are all rested from Team Spirit Week, we have new badges and KALs to really ramp up your Summer! Can you make it to the next Booster Club Level? What about reaching your next milestone in the Yarnathon? Here are the badges you can use to earn in Q3:

See the Booster Club page for the full explanations to see how you can earn these badges. You may have already earned a few from your knitting earlier in the year!


We will be focusing on 3 KALs which we will all vote on at the end of the quarter! For Q3, we will be focusing on Socks, New-To-You, and Sweater Free-for-all! If you have already submitted those KALS, wonderful! If not, you have the rest of the year to submit and the rest of Q3 to finish them to submit for voting on Ravelry. Let’s see who won in the polls from Q2:

General Guidelines for ALL knit-and-crochet-a-longs:
*Projects should be completed entirely from yarn originating from Eat.Sleep.Knit. Exceptions are small embellishments like embroidered faces.
*While any knit-a-long can be completed at any time during the year, all projects should be started and completed during 2015.
*Each project can only earn a prize for one knit-a-long, i.e. you’ll need at least one project per knit-a-long you participate in.
*For knit-a-longs with specific yardage requirements or levels, you can combine multiple projects to meet the yardage requirements. For pattern-specific knit-a-longs, if you knit two patterns we’ll credit you for the one with the most yardage.
*Each Yarnathoner is only eligible for one prize per knit-a-long, so if you want to knit two things from the same knit-a-long you’ll just receive the one yardage credit (but have two fun projects to show for it!).
*You can submit your completed projects on our website via your (new!) Yarnathon dashboard. We’ll be reviewing submissions as they arrive, but please allow 1-2 weeks to receive your credits!


Trivia starts back up next week (July 6th) and we hope you all have brushed up on your sleuthing skills! You can find your first question here and submit your answers just like you always have – on the Google doc. Check our Twitter or Ravelry Page every Monday for the new photo! Your dashboards will be updated on Monday by noon Eastern.


July’s Exclusive Madelinetosh Colorway – Tybee Island Inn


Tybee Island (sometimes called Savannah Beach) is a barrier island located miles from Savannah, Georgia. Rich in history and natural beauty, Tybee Island is a cute beach town that has much to offer for vacationers. It is most known for quaint shops and traditional Southern restaurants where you can get the best shrimp and grits! Here’s Erin for her romantic trip to the ever-charming Tybee Island Inn!


Twelve Georgia-themed colorways seemed like so many, until we tried to collectively narrow down our favorite places. Tybee Island, a little beachy haven right off the coast of Savannah, featured highly on most of our lists, and this little bed and breakfast perfectly encapsulates everything about Tybee Island to me.

It’s also incredibly sentimental, since it’s the spot where, ten years ago, Dan asked me to marry him. Being young and commitment-phobic and both a bit stubbornly unromantic, the entire thing was a really nice surprise (and, luckily, I only almost ruined it by trying to get out of a night-time walk on the beach). And truthfully, ESK would never had existed if we’d never married (in fact I might not even know how to knit!), so the Tybee Island Inn is in many ways where it all began. We’ve been back nearly ever fall since!

Tybee Island Inn is available in the following bases: TMLPashmina, Tosh DK, Tosh VintageTosh Sock and Twist Light.
