Oh yes, it’s that time of year. Those of a woolly persuasion are all madly busy twisting yarn into warm things, whether for us or for others. And the last week of November is when things really kick off, with the Ravelry Gift-a-Long
If you don’t know what that is, this blog post
from last year should explain everything. But the short version: it’s a whirlwind of inspiration and encouragement, with hundreds of designers getting together to offer discounts (starting at 8pm tonight in New York time, and for the first week only!) and motivation for your winter knitting. You can see my sale patterns here
, but it’s really not just about the sale; KAL and CAL games run until the end of December, with all
self-published patterns from participating designers qualifying. It’s enormous fun, so do come join us. And watch my blog
for interviews with some of my favourite designers, not to mention progress reports on my own GAL knitting (I’m starting with these gorgeous mitts
), over the next few weeks.
