"Um, I don't know what that is, why should I even care, ugh," you say.
Well, you should care, and here's why. From tonight until midnight on Friday November 27th, you can get 20 of my patterns on Ravelry for 25% off with coupon code giftalong2015. (See my discounted patterns here.) And it's not just me- there are 334 other designers participating this year. That's a lot of potential discounts. After the sale period, KALs will run until December 31st for ALL paid patterns by participating designers, not just the sale patterns. There are tons of prizes, including a copy of Charmed: Whimsical Knitted Accessories donated by yours truly.
In my magical world where I will have tons of free time to knit non-design stuff this Christmas season, I'm totally going to make either Graupel or Marooned socks by Hunter Hammerson, both of which will be discounted this week:
Graupel on the left, Marooned on the right
And Estheray by Annie Watts, which I ordered yarn for last month (not discounted, but it counts as part of the KAL):
And maybe this Hobby Horse for my nephew Simon, because I think it would so cute to watch him run around the yard riding a hobby horse. (Discounted, which is awesome because I've had my eye on this pattern for a year.)
I mean, this is all totally wishful thinking because I have five samples due before the end of the year, and I want to knit a sweater for my husband for Christmas, but I've only done the gauge swatch so far, and I'm halfway through a blanket that I really, really wanted to have done before Thanksgiving. I might end up just buying the patterns while they're discounted and finding time to knit them later.
Had your eye on one of my patterns? Now's the time to get it for 25% off! Patterns!
