So last year in the beginning of the fall season, I announced that I would like to do a knitalong with either Gentle Teresa or Andover. I also had some prizes and said that the deadline was in December (my first mistake; so many of you were trying to finish up holiday knitting!)
I didn’t really have that many participants so I think I would like to just giveaway my prizes. Today, I looked over the project page under Gentle Teresa, which had 36!!! projects already. Nothing under Andover yet but I know people purchased the patterns so they’re maybe just not posting about their projects or the projects are hibernating… (I know my 3rd Andover is still sitting somewhere behind our bed)
So! This is how it’s going to work (for both Andover and Gentle Teresa):
If you have a Ravelry account or a blog: Post pictures and blog about it if you haven’t done so! Then email me the links at jdknitter (at) gmail (dot) com.
If you don’t have Ravelry or a blog, then Email me at jdknitter (at) gmail (dot) com.
Deadline? I’ll have to give those of you who are still finishing up projects so I’d say February 28, 2013!
Prizes: Those yarns from that post but I’ll be adding NEW prizes for every 10 new posts/emails I get.
How to increase your chance of winning the giveaway? SHARE YOUR STORIES. I know I do this too, but sometimes we just post pictures and that’s it. But I’d love to hear about your experiences with the projects, the good and the bad.
