The Odyssey Trail KAL

by Countess Ablaze March 15, 2015

As promised at the start of the year, there will be The Odyssey Trail KAL! There will be chances to win fabulous prizes!

I want you to take your inspiration from Greece and you can be as literal or conceptual as you desire. You may have fond memories of a holiday in Greece, you might like a particular Greek myth or a love of the Greek Key motif.

I have created a Bundle of patterns in the Countess Ablaze Ravelry group that we can collectively curate and I have got the ball rolling with a few ideas. I would like you to feel free to add your own, they could be a great help for anybody looking for inspiration.


Here’s how it works:

The KAL will run from April 1st to June 1st 2015.

  • You may use any yarn that suits your project but to be eligible to win prizes, a minimum of 50% of your project must be from Countess Ablaze. Also, for the spinners, handspun yarns made from Countess Ablaze fibres count as well!

  • There will be two thread, one for chattering and KAL-ing and another thread where completed projects are submitted to be eligible for prizes. (As with previous KALs, moderators are not eligible for prizes).

  • Projects must be completed by June 1st at noon BST.

  • Please make sure that your project is submitted to the separate prize thread by Thursday 4th June 11pm BST. The thread will be locked after this.

  • Prizes will be drawn on Friday 5th June.

  • Your project is eligible for two entries into the prize draw. ///If you use 50% - 99% of CA yarn/fibre, you get one entry. ///If you use 100% of CA yarn/fibre, you get two entries.

  • I’d like you to write a short sentence about how or why your project is inspired by Greece when you submit to the prize thread. Your entry will be void without this.

  • Prizes will be drawn by a RNG generator.


  • The Prizes - oh yes, there WILL be prizes!

    • A £50 gift voucher to spend at Countess Ablaze
    • A £25 gift voucher to spend at Countess Ablaze
    • A £10 gift voucher to spend at Countess Ablaze

    I’m looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. Join us in the Countess Ablaze Ravelry group to participate. Happy knitting!
