Giftalong 2019: General Chit-Chat

Hello ambitious gift-knitting friends! This is the topic where we can chat to our hearts’ content about holiday knitting for 2019.

Our 2019 gift-along starts on Wednesday, October 23, and our post on that day will have all the details re: projects and prizes.

This year we will also have knitalong teams for people knitting projects from four different MDK Field Guides. Each team has a topic in the Lounge, so they can talk among themselves about the projects they are knitting. Feel free to join any or all of the Teams. The more teams you post to, the more prizes you’re eligible for.

FUN TIMES AHEAD! Happy holidays!

Love, Kay and Ann

Let’s get ready to rumble! Not sure what I am doing, but I have a hankering for some socks, maybe a sweet shawl and a hat or two…time to rummage thru the stash!

What if I’ve already begun an X-Factor cowl? Does the Giftalong require a fresh start?

Nope! If you’re knitting it for the holidays, it counts.

In that case, I’m Team Everything, and this is my X-Factor Cowl! It’s a yak merino blend held double and the squish is real. There’s one small mistake but I don’t mind.
