HUZZAH! A KAL!
We’re combining the best of both worlds with this one: stitchnerd’s New Caesars patterns with Countess Ablaze yarns! There will be mosaic knitting! There will be cowls! There will be shawls! There will be lots of chances to win fabulous prizes! There will be an alarming over-abundance of exclamation points!
Here’s how it works:
There will be two threads - a chat thread (this one) and a no-chat prize thread. Everyone (except for the CA mods) is eligible to enter their projects into the prize thread. Previously knit and/or tested projects from the “New Caesars” mosaic collection count, and each person has a maximum number of entries into what is essentially an RNG ‘raffle’ drawing of 6.
If you knit 1 item with 1 of the yarns being Countess Ablaze and post a photo in the prize thread, that counts as an entry (please note which yarn was CA).
If you knit 1 item with 2 of the yarns being Countess Ablaze and post a photo in the prize thread, that counts as a second entry (please post again w/ photo and list the second yarn used for RNG purposes).
If you submit your FO to the gallery on the Countess Ablaze website, and then post the link back to it once it’s been uploaded, like this example from the Countess herself: gallery entry: only when invited handspun swimming with salmon cowl
Also, for the spinners, handspun yarns made from Countess Ablaze fibres count as well!
You can double your number of entries by knitting both patterns in the collection - and you can get both patterns in the collection at a discounted price as opposed to purchasing each one separately. Sweet!
Note: Yarn must be chosen from stock on hand and shipping is free
We’re looking forward to seeing a lot of FO’s from stitchnerds as well as Countess Ablaze(rs?) group members as well! And let’s photobomb the gallery with New Caesars shawls and cowls - it will be epic!
If anyone has any questions regarding the patterns, please feel free to earburn Susan @ stitchnerd - she is more than happy to help.
The KAL will run from today, May 24th, until needles down on Friday, July 18th. This gives everyone enough time to order yarn if they need from the next update (Claudius) and have it delivered, and still knit something beautiful. For the faster knitters, enough time to get the maximum amount of entries in for the RNG prize raffle as well. Please make sure all images are posted to the prize thread and submitted to the gallery by July 19th so that by July 20th you can make sure all gallery upload hyperlinks are posted as well.
I will lock the prize thread at midnight CST on Sunday, July 20th, and do the prize drawing and announce the winners on Monday, July 21st.
Have fun everyone and happy knitting!
The real Lord Kitchener had his face plastered on wartime posters exclaiming "Your Country Needs You." Well, your stash needs this yarn.
We have been meticulously planning, prepping and designing for this collection behind the scenes for a few months now and we’re VERY excited to be launching our red carpet, opening night event for all our Countess Ablaze fans. So here we go!
Countess Ablaze presents…
Cabin fever, war, lust, travelling through space, deceit, and murder; it’s our brand-spanking new custom blends collection!
