20 Years of Zitron Trekking Knit Along and Contest? Skacel has teamed up with Michelle Hunter of "Knit Purl Hunter" who is leading the knit along! The Knit Along (KAL) will began this month, and will end on July 15th. Each month a new, one skein project will be featured, which will introduce knitters to different techniques. Each pattern is an original Michelle Hunter design featuring Trekking yarn.
January's KAL features the "Center of Attention" toe-up sock. If you have never done toe-up socks, this is your chance! Michelle has posted the first segment of the sock, and will be posting the rest of the instructions for the project in three more segments on the 8th, 15th and 22nd at www.knitpurlhunter.com. Along with the pattern, educational “how-to” video lessons will enable knitters of all skill levels to participate! Also, comments and questions will be answered daily at the KAL site.
Bonus: to kick things off, if you knit your socks from the special edition Trekking XXL color "Susanne", Skacel will donate $10 to the Marsha Revkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research!
Did we mention Prizes? There will be weekly and monthly prizes awarded, culminating in July with the Grand Prize ... a weekend getaway to Seattle for two people, including a trip to Skacel and a $1,000 yarn and needle shopping spree in the Skacel warehouse! More info on these great prizes ...
