Upcoming:

One Skein Craft-a-Long

  • Will start June 1, 2013 – please do not CO before then
  • Will end July 31, 2013
  • Must use 75-100% of a skein, or spin 1 bump/batt/braid of fiber
  • Joint CAL with Anna of the Knitting with Sir Anselot and Lady G Podcast
  • Prize: Nooch Fiber Midtown sock in Tomorrow

Temperature/Weather Craft-a-Long

The idea is to take the concept of Kristen Cooper’s Temperature Scarf and use it in a way that works for you. Don’t want to commit to a year-long project? Try tackling a month-long project instead – the minimum size for a project is 28 days.

It is up to you what color/weight of yarn you use, and what the finished object will be. You decide how big you want your color sections to be. You decide what your color blocks represent (high temps, low temps, what the sky looks like, the day’s humidity level…)

It runs 5/17/13 – 5/27/14
