Indie Designs from the Giftalong that caught my eye

One of the best things about the Giftalong on Ravelry is that the designers promote each other, rather than themselves. Think of it as a Black Friday sale that is about connection, support, and fun. (Followed by weeks of knitting and crocheting and if that’s not our jam, what is?!)

Here’s a link to the massive bundle of items on sale. Click the “advanced button” to sort by yarn weight, yardage, category, whether you already own it or have it favourited, etc.

I did some fun browsing and here are 3 items for each category of the knitalong:

Indie Designer Gift-a-long 2022

Who’s ready to have a party?

I am!

And so are 200+ designers and 1000s of knitters and crocheters over on Ravelry!

 

It’s a big party. It’s a 6-week celebration of the joys of making gifts with patterns from over 200 designers. (Gifts for yourself included!)  There are games. There is a fun community chattering about the things you love to make. There are prizes. And to make all this wonderful stuff even better, it starts off with a week with oodles of patterns on sale 25% off with the code “giftalong2022”.

Here’s a link to an easy-to-browse bundle of the patterns I have on sale this week.

Here’s a link to the Gift-A-Long group on Ravelry. Come over and join in! And don’t forget to check out the hashtags #giftalong2022 and #GAL2022

 

Any project you make from one of the patterns a participating designer has for sale is eligible to win prizes, even if you bought it another year, or got it free as a prize sometime.

 

There’s Gnome Help like Live Help!

 

Do you or someone you know want step-by-step guidance for gnomes? I’m teaching an online class Saturday, Dec 3 with River City Yarns. It’s perfect for beginners.

We’ll knit up Gnoah from Gno Fun Like Gnome Fun and you’ll have my help every step of the way. It’s worsted weight, sweet and fun, and I promise you’ll smile a bunch.

Year of Gnomes Check-In

Lots of people want to know if they’ve actually been registered for all the months they’ve completed.

Wendy of Knitters Brewing Company, has been utterly and amazingly helpful and is doing an incredible amount of work on this! She’s basically making this a workable project, and you should definitely check out her yarns if you’re so inclined.

……………………………………………………………………
