Boss Cat and I had so much fun with out last KAL at Chez Wandering Cat, we've decided to start another one for the summer. I think summer is the best time for knitting socks, they're small, generally knit up quick, and you can work on them comfortably in hot weather.
But we know not everyone likes to knit socks like we do so, we've decided to include any project as long as it starts with "S", and knit with WCY.
So here are the details and obligatory "Cat in Knits" picture:
Wandering Cat “S”ummer “S”titch-a-long --Dates: May 23rd- September 5th 2011.
Projects must be knit or crocheted in Wandering Cat Yarn.
Project type must start with the letter “S” (ie socks, shawls, sweaters, stoles, scarves, skirts.. even snails. If it begins with an “S” - you’re good!)
Projects must be completed between May 23rd -- Sept 5th, but can be started before May 23rd.(so if you have already started something as long as it is finished on May 23rd or after or after you can enter it.)
Tag your projects with yearofthecat
Each completed project = one entry. Enter as many times as you like
FOs that are also knit from a Wandering Cat pattern will get an extra entry.
There will be three prize kits, drawn at random from all entries.
