Hello, wonderful makers!!! I thought it time that I highlight the first of two Alongs going on in the year of 2021. The second is the Stripe Along 2021.
Here’s a bit of background on the Along and how it came about:
I realized that I’m down to 3 more skeins of Desert Vista Dyeworks’ stripey yarn (as of December 2020). As I have enough stripey yarn to get through a full year if I continue knitting a pair a month, I have decided to start an Along for those who like stripes of ANY kind. This along will run all year long.
I’ll be using #sdlstripealong2021 on all Social Media.
- The rules are simple. Anything you finish in 2021 with stripes will count.
- You must be a member of The Silver’s Dreamland Discord or FB group. If you don’t use either, please make sure you use the Hashtag and @ me on Instagram (@silverstreats). This way I know to count your projects for this along.
- Colorwork, Fairisle, Stranded Colorwork, Double Knitting, and Intarsia will count, as long as the colors you use are bright and cheerful.
- A Few Notes: For this Along, you can enter your project multiple times. There is no need to enter the FO multiple times. As long as you notate how long it took you to complete each project, I’ll comment with the correct Post numbers.
- If you started and finished the project in 2021, you can enter your FOs 2 total times.
- If you started and finished the project in 6 months time, you can enter your FOs 3 total times.
- If you started and finished the project in 3 months time, you can enter your FOs 4 total times.
- If you started and finished the project in 2 months time, you can enter your FOs 5 total times.
- If you started and finished the project in 1 months time, you can enter your FOs 6 total times.
- A skein of yarn by West Yorkshire Spinners called the “Fairy Lights” colorway. Pattern is included!
- @Pat (loonyhiker) has offered one of her lovely patterns. You can look at her patterns on Lovecraft, or on Rav. https://www.lovecrafts.com/en-us/user/Pat-H/patterns/630f52b1-1e3c-4190-9e4d-c58fecb61daf or https://www.ravelry.com/designers/pat-hensley
- If anyone wishes to donate any prizes, please message me on Discord (I’m Silver Dee #8858, FB, or you can e-mail me at email@example.com. I do have a few prizes in mind as of right now, but I haven’t completely decided (as I JUST now thought to put this Along together).
I hope to see you there!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
