Scared Yet?

“To invent you need a good imagination and a pile of junk”
Thomas Edison

While I think many knitters would gasp to hear yarn and needles grouped into a junk category, there have been some wonderful imaginations pouring over graph paper, pencils, swatches, and even the more hi tech stitch programs. I am very pleased to announce that there are some challenging and wonderful patterns!

Every 10 days…so that you can plan accordingly, a new pattern will be released.
A tally will be kept for Fastest, Most Original Interpretation, Scariest Socks and for those who are doing something unknown and scary for the first time (cables, lace, intarsia) or if this is your first sock ever. I think a congeniality prize should also be available, where you will vote on the most encouraging knitter. This is open to both the participants and group observers (must be a member of the Rav group).

You must follow the pattern as it is written. I hope you will find this to be a great opportunity to learn some new techniques.

This group will be mostly on Ravelry.com . if you are not a member, join now. It will take 2-3 days for your membership to be activated. So don’t wait until the last minute.

August 23 or so the supply list will be posted on both the blog and ravelry so that you can plan ahead and stock up if need be on any sock yarns. We know this is a great excuse to shop. Participants will be given a 13% discount at several “shops” so keep an eye out!
A participant list will be posted on the group so that participants and observers will be in separate categories. PM me with your desire to participate in the KALs and get the 13% discount.
