Intro To Pride Along

      1. The Pride Along 2122 will encompass two Pride months. It will start today, Monday, May 17th, 2021 [The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT)] and will wrap up June 30th, 2022. 
      2. This year-long Along is meant to celebrate the wonderful diversity of our Crafting Community. Show your pride in this Along!

Ways To Play

      1. This Along will run in the Silver’s Dreamland FB and Discord groups. I’ll be linking both in the description box below this video. (Sorry. I don’t use Ravelry for my alongs anymore.)
      2. If you choose not to use either platform, that’s fine. If you use #sdlpridealong2122, #mcpridealong2122, #ggkcspridealong2122, #akpridealong2122, #wspridealong2122 or #pridealong2122 on Instagram, I’ll still count your FOs in the along. 
      3. No matter how you decide to play, I’ll be commenting on your posts with a number to be entered for Prizes.
      4. You can play by Knitting the Progression Shawl by Carin Risinger (Rav Link: or Crocheting the Quick & Simple Granny Shawl by Hannah Owens ( 
      5. If you Use any Pride colorway (including, but not exclusively Rainbow, Gender Fluid, Intersex, Trans colorways, etc.), your projects will count.
      6. If you knit/crochet/stitch ANY Pride flag, it will count. (Using blocks of color to represent the flags in a shawl or other items DO count) 
      7. Using a pattern with the word “Pride” or “Proud” in it counts as well. Please include the name of the design, the designer, and a link (if you can’t find one other than to Rav, that’ll be fine…) 
      8. Anything with rainbows in it will count as well.
      9. You will get double entries if you knit the Progression Shawl with a Pride colorway or making a Pride Flag while knitting the Progression Shawl. 
      10. You will also get double entries if you crochet the Quick & Simple Granny Shawl with a Pride colorway or make a Pride Flag while crocheting the Quick & Simple Granny Shawl.
      1. No WIPs are allowed. Sorry. With the length of this along, I think we’ll be fine.
