Happy Fuzzy Yarn is hosting a series of knit-alongs and spin-alongs in 2015 in our Ravelry living room — you should come join us! There will be chatting, and sales, and prizes! If you haven’t signed up for Ravelry yet, it’s easy to do and free. Joining the Happy Fuzzy Yarn group on Ravelry is also free.
First up, starting January 1st and ending February 28th, is a knit-along for socks and a spin-along for the Local Wool Project. To participate, you just jump in on the KAL or SAL topics on our forum, tell us what you’re going to make, post a progress picture, and, later, a picture of your finished project. For the knit-along, the yarn OR pattern (or both, if you are an overachiever) should come from Happy Fuzzy Yarn. For the spin-along, we’re delving into the Washtenaw Co. sourced wool and wool/alpaca combed top that Riin has dyed up in some of her popular colorways as well as some Local Wool Project exclusive colorways.
By the way, if you been waiting till one of these days to order some of the Local Wool, NOW is the time! There’s only a limited quantity left. It’s all been dyed, and it’s all in the store.
In early March, we’ll draw a random name of those who participated — and finished — for both the KAL and the SAL — and award prizes!
If you don’t have the Happy Fuzzy Yarn yarn or fiber in your stash that you need for the knit-along and spin-along, don’t worry, we got you covered. We’re having a year-end sale on everything in the store — 20% off with coupon code YEAREND. The sale runs from December 26th-31st. We’ll be spending time with our families so orders placed after December 23rd won’t ship until the week of January 5th.
If you’re not into knitting socks (no one said they had to be fingering weight socks!) or spinning, or know you’re already too busy with other projects, you are still welcome to come cheer others on. We’ll be doing these knit-alongs and spin-alongs all year so there will hopefully be something for everyone to try out.
Wishing everyone a happy, fuzzy holiday full of warmth and good-will!
