Announcing the Loida Knit Along!

Posted on September 26, 2012 by knittingpatterns4you | 0 Comments

Are you planning to knit my new pattern, Loida? If so you should join my KAL and knit it at the same time as dozens of other knitters!

KAL Details:

The KAL will officially start next week on October 1st, 2012 and will run through November 15th, 2012.

To join the KAL, sign up for the Loida Knitalong Google Group List and start chatting with your fellow knitters!

Throughout the KAL I will be writing blog posts about the process of knitting the shawl, starting with choosing a yarn and ending with blocking your shawl.

The posts will also be sent as emails to the Loida Knitalong Mailing List, so you'll always be up-to-date on the latest KAL news.


I've taken a page from the quilting blog world and have decided to do prizes with this KAL!

This was  a new concept for me but seeing how it works in the quilting world with their QAL's has inspired me to do the same thing with knitting. I hope you guys like it!

There are 3 different prizes you could win:

3 skeins of Koigu in your choice of colors! You'll be picking from the Koigu colors I have in stock.

Spring Maple Shawl Kit - the pattern for the Spring Maple Shawl plus a skein of Lace!

Koigu minis grab bag! Approximately 15 mini skeins of Koigu KPPPM, all of which are from my Koigu Mini-Skeins Club shipments.

How to win:

When the KAL is over on the 15th of November, if you've finished your shawl you'll be able to enter to win one of the above prizes!

You'll receive one entry into the prize raffle for doing each of the actions below:

  1. Posting a photo of your finished shawl on the Chiagu Facebook page
  2. Posting a photo of your finished shawl on the Facebook page 
  3. Repinning my Loida Shawl pin to your own Pinterest account
  4. Repinning one of Sandra's pins (which pin is TBD)
  5. Putting your finished shawl project in Ravelry, linked to the Loida pattern
  6. Posting about your shawl to the Sandra Singh Ravelry group

Do as many of those as you'd like and each action is an entry into the raffle!

Prizes will be randomly chosen from the entries on Monday, November 19th, 2012.

Winners will be announced here on my blog, in the Google group, and via email. Prizes will ship out within a week of recipients claiming their prizes by responding to my email.

And yes, international entries are welcome! Encouraged even ;o)

Ready to get started?

Here's what to do:

  1. Join the Google group
  2. Buy the Loida pattern (it's on sale for only $3.00 until October 1!!)
  3. Start shopping for yarn -- Sandra's got her Lace yarn on sale for 10% off right now!
