KALing Along


Did you know that we have a Ravelry group where you can  earn lots of doorprize tickets for SSK 2015? We do!  It’s located here.

We will be having a Knitalong (KAL) for our wonderful teacher, Susan B. Anderson’s patterns in the months of February and March. You may pick any of Susan’s patterns and join us for a fun time.
Official Type Stuff:
The KAL will run from February 1st-March 31st, 2015.  Projects must be cast on February 1st or later. Projects will be eligible for tickets if posted in the correct format to the SSK Ravelry group by 11 pm central time on March 31st.

Posting format:
Please post the following for your entry to count:

  • A picture of the finished object
  • Name of the pattern used
  • Yarn used including yardage.

Door prize tickets will be awarded in the following way:
1 ticket per 100 yards completed. For example, a sweater that took 1,053 yards would earn 10 tickets

2 additional tickets if you use yarn from one of our wonderful vendors.

The vendors for SSK 2015 are:


Tempted Yarns

Sun Valley


2 additional tickets if you use handspun. Handspun may be spun by you or someone else and must be used for 50% of greater of your project. The spinning portion of the project may be completed ahead of time.

2 additional tickets if you post an in progress photo in the photo thread that includes one of the accessories made by one of our vendors (For example, a bag from the Fat Squirrel, Tangerine Designs or other vendor)

Team Competition:

The team that has the most team members participate in the KAL will receive 2 extras tickets for each team member that participated.  For example, if team 1 has 7/15 members participate and team 2 has 8/15 members, each participating member of team 2 would receive 2 extra tickets.  In the case of a tie, the team that has the most total tickets earned will win.

If you have any questions, let us know! I can’t wait to see what y’all knit up!

PS Susan B Anderson is having a shawl kal in her Itty Bitty Knits group on Ravelry and has a coupon code for her shawls patterns that is good until Jan. 31st.
