Summer is here! Celebrate with a pair of Fluttered Footie Socks! Join the KAL!

I just love the summer colors in this yarn! The June Knit-Along (KAL) project, "Fluttered" features a cuff-down footie sock, and if you use the featured Trekking Pro Natura color "Pretty Pink" you will have more chances to win terriffic prizes from Skacel!

Since the beginning of the year, Skacel teamed up with Michelle Hunter of "Knit Purl Hunter" to kick-off a series of monthly Knit-Along projects and contest.  Each month a new one skein project is featured, introducing knitters to different techniques ... the June project is a top-down footie sock pattern called "Fluttered" ... if you like the project, but prefer a more subtle color, we have a bunch of colorways to choose from!

On June 1st, Michelle will post the first segment of the sock pattern, and will be posting the rest of the instructions for the project in three more segments on the 8th, 15th and 22nd at 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.

Remember to submit your project to Skacel to be eligible for prizes! Weekly and monthly prizes will be 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 ...
