With the whiff of Autumn in the Northern hemisphere came the battle cry of knitters "KNIT ALL THE THINGS!!" There's been talk of apple harvests, baking and crunching leaves. It seemed appropriate then that the Playful Group will host a 'Time For Harvest Craft Along' and here's the plan:
Time for Harvest CAL (#harvestcal14) (#APDpodcastcal14)
September 1st 2014
Ways to participate:
There will be a chatty thread in the group where we talk about our efforts during September. Chat on there will be inclusive, fun and multicraftal. I will hit the random number generator on 30th September and a chatty group member will get a prize.
Ripening Fruits: (#ripeningfruits) This can be those long languishing wips that need finishing to wear this Autumn or harvesting from your garden. Possibly a book that you’ve dropped off reading and wanted to finish. Tell us your story and finish off that process!
New Flavours: (#newflavours) Got a new technique you want to have a go this knitting season? A new cake recipe to try? Are you planting out bulbs or diving into a new book? Tell us! All I ask is you roughly link it to Fall/ Autumn.
If you’re playing along via social media you now have those hashtag thingies. One for your category and one just for the cal/ podcast. I’ll come find you guys too via those hashtags on the 30th and there will be a social media prize so don’t forget to tag!
Nearer the time I’ll put up an FO thread and I’m going to ask you to enter ONCE but you can edit that post to add all that you’ve been doing. So you can enter cakes, bakes and reads along with your sweater. There will be a prize for that non chatty thread too.
So that's a lot of chatter, a lot of prizes and a lot of inspiration. Can't wait! Stay tuned for prize announcements!
