The goal of our finish-along is to finish up projects in progress so we can move on to our fall and winter projects in September. Some of these projects may be freshly on the needles or they may be languishing in the bottom of a basket in your guest room (not me, no, never!). Pull them out and pick one. Any project! Maybe you finally crochet together all those granny squares or you knit through the toe of a second sock – whatever it is, take a step forward this month.
A big part of a knit-along or crochet-along is sharing progress and motivating each other as we go. Post a progress photo on our facebook page or Ravelry group and meet some new people as you go. For each week I will make a list of everyone who posted a photo and use a random number generator to choose the winner of a $10 gift certificate to Sage! (Just a little extra motivation for you!)
I HAVE CHANGED THE ENTRY GUIDELINES!
I’ve decided that, even though our goal is to finish some projects, we should be rewarded for progress. Every step you take towards a goal is worthy of praise, not just the end result. So here’s the new overview:
Starting August 1st, send in (firstname.lastname@example.org), post to Ravelry or post photos to Facebook (Sage Yarn) of your projects in progress in yarn you’ve purchased at Sage. Your shared photo enters you into our prize drawing. I will give away one gift certificate per week – on 8/7, 8/14, 8/21 and 8/28, using a random number generator.
Celeste and I will continue to post motivation, tips and our own progress to the blog and facebook as we go. We hope you’ll join us!
