I believe that it is high time to start getting the second stage of the Aroha Knits KAL underway: sign-ups!
I am offering an exclusive 10% off discount for KAL participants to use in my Ravelry store if they haven't picked out a pattern: AROHAKAL10.
Participants who post their FOs in the KAL FO thread will be entered into the drawing at the end of the KAL. Below is the current listing of wonderful people who are sponsoring the KAL by offering prizes! I'll be providing more detailed information about each sponsor's prize but this is what you can expect so far!
Paule Roubert - donating (vi)laines
Stitch Marker Sets
The Knit Side (hand painted mugs)
I will also be contributing prizes to the KAL, such as copies of my patterns and goodies bags filled with Japanese treats! I am still accepting prizes for the KAL, just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cast on day is September 28th, the Monday after the release of the Simply Familiar shawl and will run until November 30th, giving you about two months to complete your projects.
To express your interest in participating in the KAL, post in this thread on my Ravelry forum what project you plan on knitting! This gives me a general idea of how many people I expect there will be. You are allowed to finish more than FO, and each finished FO will count as a separate entry for the prize drawing (however I do ask that you limit your FOs from my free patterns to one).
Chatter Thread and FO Thread
I'm going to make two extra threads on my Ravelry forum that will be locked until cast on day. The chatter thread will be for posting images of WIPs, chatting with other participants and asking me for any pattern support. When you have finished, post your FOs to the FO thread. I'm thinking of adding a fun challenge to the FO thread for the images you post there, but once I figure that out, I'll let you know!
