Countdown to Christmas KAL

I know it may seem early to start thinking about Christmas but it will be here before you know it.  There's only 173 more sleeps until Christmas.  That's 172 days (or less if your fingers cramp up) to knit all those Christmas presents on your list.  Not much time really.
Every year I have plans to make everyone in my family something handmade and every year I fail and only manage to complete one or two.  But this year my daughter Sarah and I have decided things will be different.  We want to get a headstart on our Christmas knitting and we hope you do to.
Together we are hosting the Countdown to Christmas KAL.  The rules are really simple and I'm giving away a fabulous prize just for participating.  The KAL will  take place on Instagram. You can follow Sarah at @thenaptimeknitter and myself @thehandmakersbag. 

  1. The KAL will start on July 25th and run until August 25th. That's one whole month to complete as many gifts as possible.
  2. There's no limit to the number of gifts you can make.  In fact the more the better.  But your projects should be gifts you plan to give for the holidays. (You do not have to celebrate Christmas to participate.  This KAL is not about the holiday you observe but about getting prepared and avoiding that last minute rush.  All are welcome.)
  3. No WIP's please.  Your project(s) must be cast on between July 25th & August 25th.
  4. You do not have to complete a project to be eligible to win.
  5. To enter, post your projects in your Instagram feed and use the hashtag #countdowntochristmasKAL19.  Each post counts as one entry into the giveaway.  Your account does need to be public in order for us to see your posts.
  6. The giveaway is open to US and international residents.  If an international winner is chosen they will be given a code for the value of the prize to use toward the purchase of a Knitters Gift Box.  Any additional shipping charges will be the responsibility of the winner.

We'll choose one post at random to win a Knitter's Gift Box.  These gift boxes aren't even available in the shop yet.


Want to know more about the prize?  These gift boxes are filled with fabulous gifts to delight any knitter.  Each box includes a project bag, enough yarn to complete a special project dyed by Sarah in an exclusive colorway and lots of extra goodies.  The winner will be given the chance to choose either the Sleigh Ride Sock kit or the Winter Wonderland Shawl kit.


So start gathering those patterns and sorting through your stash and get ready to cast on July 25th.
