Ravelry, KALs, and Vendors; Oh My!

Have you been to the SSK Ravelry group yet? There are  tons of information including an SSK FAQ thread and lots of chatter (we love chatter!)

One of the biggest things we have going on are the start of the SSK knitalongs.  Participation in Knitalongs is totally up to you, but it does earn you more doorprize tickets (always fun). Here’s all the information on our current Knitalong:

We will be starting our first knitalong November 1st and it will end December 16th.
This knitalong will feature any design by our teacher, Susan B Anderson. You can pick any of Susan b Anderson’s 236 designs (her new mini collection of ornaments is totally floating me boat right now).

Knit something and post a finished picture in the ravelry thread from prompt within the time frame listed, you get 3 extra raffle tickets for SSK prizes
Knit something and post a finished picture in the ravelry thread from the prompt with one of the yarns from our vendors, get 5 extra raffle tickets for SSK prizes
Knit with handspun that came from fiber from one of our vendors (linked to our page of vendors), get 7 extra raffle tickets for SSK prizes (it can already be spun)

Raffle tickets will be given out at time of check-in at SSK. We will keep a master list of who has earned how many extra tickets. We can’t tell you yet what the raffle prizes will be, but we promise you won’t be disappointed!

The prompt is meant to include any pattern written by them: free patterns, purchased patterns, or those that are included in their published books or e-books. You must post a picture of your FO in the ravelry group KAL thread in order to be eligible for any prizes or extra raffle tickets.

Please tag your projects with SSK2013KAL1.

You can KAL with as many projects as you like, but you can only earn raffle tickets on one project per KAL period.

This round will run from November 1st-December 16th

Don’t forget about using SSK Vendor yarn/fiber for extra points!
