    A First Make-A-Long

    Hi Friends! Welcome to the new forum! We'll be continuing the Make-A-Long that we started on July 4th over here. This month we will be reclaiming the joy of crafting by creating something we love. We started July 4th, will have weekly check-ins, and end on August 1.

    PRIZE: A $6.00 USD credit to an Etsy shop chosen by the winner. A BIG thank you to KnitonaShingle for generously donating this prize!

    If you would like to be eligible for the prize at the end please read the Prize Rules here. Once you have read the rules post a comment on this thread saying "I'm in and have read and agree to the rules." Members who entered on the first forum should be on the list below. I will add newcomers as needed.

    If you don't want to be entered in for the prize, that is okay! We are happy to have your company as we craft along!

    July 4 - Cast On!
    July 11 – Check In #1, July 18 – Check in #2, July 25 – Check in #3
    • On a check-in week please share your project progress. Pictures are encouraged!

    Aug 1 – Bind Off
    • To be eligible for a prize your must:
    1. Have officially entered the MAL (by reading the prize rules and commenting "I'm in and have read and agree to the rules.")
    2. Post a Bind Off Post that contains:
    o A Picture of your project on August 1. Your project does not need to be done to be eligible.
    o Tell us how your project fits the make-a-long. This MAL was all about rediscovering the joy of making. Tell us what you enJOYed about making your project.

    On August 2, I will create a spreadsheet of all the qualifying entries and use a random number generator to pick the winner.

          I'm here! I started on another project since I finished my first already. Do I need to repost my finished project here?

            Here is my first check-in a couple of days late! Started this while on vacation in the Boundary Waters but haven't gotten very far. Hard to knit in a fishing boat! Each row is 420 stitches, all garter, so its a bit of a grind! The yarn is fabulous so it makes up for the long rows!

                Yay!! Happy that you found us! At the end of the MAL I'm asking everyone to post a "Bind Off Post" with a picture and details of the project, so you will need to repost but that can happen at the end. I still need to figure out the best way to organize it. In the meantime if you want to post your FO to show it off, that's great! But posting for the entry for the prize drawing comes later.

                  I cast these on last evening. Working through the cuff then I will proceed into a simple lacy pattern.

                        Just checking in. I'm not very far along and it is unlikely I will finish on time. But I knew that when I started on 4 July - just wanted to join in the fun having never joined a MAL/KAL.
