kal time! - pollination

well, i am once again floored by the ravelry reaction to my shawls! pollination was downloaded well over 1000 times before the coupon code expired today, which is super exciting! do you know why? because that means all you folks can start on the pollination kal right away! and so can the rest of you - you just need to go grab a copy of the pattern.

the kal will work as follows:

-it starts today, november 1st, and will end at 11:59pm CST on november 30th. you've got one whole month to knit up pollination!

-to participate, hashtag your ravelry projects and social media (twitter, instagram, and facebook) photos with #pollinationkal, #sunflowerknit, and tag me if you can (@ash_alberg on twitter, sunflowerknit on instagram and facebook).

-i will do a random draw on december 1st for one winner among the finished projects. this means i need to see your fo photo before the end of the kal! you can post it on instagram, share it on ravelry, email me at ash.sunflowerknit[at], snail mail it to me if you happen to know me in person and know my address…(totally not sharing that info, sorry folks). i just need to see it. i will make a pot of names and draw one at random. that person will win a skein of hikoo american b.r.a.n.d fingering weight wool that i have naturally dyed by hand, using alum and red cabbage leaves.

check out that sexy periwinkle! cabbage is a strange, strange plant...

that's all there is to it! but, knowing me, there will also be random draws for various prizes throughout the month. i'm also currently putting together kits with my patterns and naturally dyed wool that i make in my kitchen, so maybe one of those will find its way into the prize pot…

number 4, 12, and 15! woot!
i'm just really excited that people are loving my patterns so much, so thank you all! it's very encouraging for me as a new designer to have so much support. cheers! and welcome to the start of the when nature fought back collection! expect the upcoming months to be full of new designs and more fun events. can't wait to see your photos!
