What is the Indie Gift-A-Long, you ask?
Well, it has two parts …
The first part is a sale on Ravelry. The sale begins tomorrow (Nov 13th) and runs for just one week. Almost 300 designers have put their best “gift” patterns on sale — 3822 patterns, at latest count. For the period of the sale, you can buy as many of those patterns as you like, all at 25% discount, using the code giftalong2014. My sale patterns include Mighty Mini, Hornburg, and lots of lace shawls.
The second part of the GAL is the KAL/CAL … join the Indie Design Gift-A-Long group on Ravelry now! Seriously, you should do it. All participating designers donated a minimum of five patterns as prizes, and most of us donated something else too, including YARN. Oh, yeah. The list of prizes is truly drool-worthy (details on eligibility). There are fun little games daily. Daily, I say! And, all the added fun of crafting together with other people.
