Ok, now that I’ve taken some photos of the final piece for the pattern booklet (Four Elements) lets get started on voting for our next KAL (knit a long).
The 3 pieces that we will be voting on are all from the booklet Four Elements that will be released at the end of the week .Â I’ve listed all supplies so everyone has a chance to gather what they need in time for the KAL.Â How does everyone feel about a November 1st start?Â I’ll also have a special 10% off discount going until that date for the booklet to make it even easier to get started. The booklet will be available for pre-order immediately and when itÂ is released on the 15th you will automatically receive a link to download the pdf.
Standard price $13.95 with 10% discount $12.55.
Now for the exciting part….everyone who votes (in the comments of this post) will be entered into a raffle.Â The first prize will be a pdf copy of this pattern booklet and 100g of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in color 1285 (dark blue) which has just enough yardage for Gaoth.Â I’ll also give out 1 more pdf copy of the booklet for 2nd prize.Â The raffle will end on the 16th of October, so get voting!Â (If you have already bought the booklet I will send you two of my other self-published patterns so you still win!)
