Errnaments KAL and SAFF Travel Plans

Hey everybody! Just a “quickie” (in a manner of speaking, depending on your definition) today, talking about our SAFF travel plans for this weekend, letting Jess give a brief intro, and talking about our Errnaments KAL, which starts on 11/1! Thanks for listening, and be sure to stop by the Ravelry group!

We are going to SAFF on Saturday 10/29! We aren’t going to do an official meetup, but will be wandering around so if you see us, please say hi! We will have podcast buttons and we promise we don’t bite. 😉

Vendors we’re excited about:
A Hundred Ravens
Alicia Goes Around
Appalachian Naturals Soap
Dusty’s Vintage Buttons
Gale’s Art
Green Mountain Spinnery
Heatherlane Farms
LYDIA Yarn
Pawley Studio
River’s Edge Fiber Arts
SewFlo
Shalimar
Unplanned Peacock

Errnament KAL
The idea is to spread the love during this holiday season and knit with a purpose! All proceeds from the pattern go to Child Aid. In addition to the pattern, 15% of the proceeds from Dana’s mini kits and full-sized skeins of the Christmas colorways in the kit will also go to Child Aid. You can get entries for downloading the pattern, for knitting with Dana’s specially dyed minis (or full sized skeins of the colorways), and for donating to Child Aid. For every $10 you donate (screenshot and pm us a receipt) you will also get an entry. The idea is to knit one ornament for yourself and one for your friend. You can use any of the ornament patterns (heck, adapt them for yourself if you want). To help us out, after you’ve earned your first entry please post a FO post in the FO thread and edit it to update with new entries and pictures (yes we must see pictures of your ornaments!), totaling the amount of entries you’ve earned at the bottom of your post in bold. You can just post text that you donated to ChildAid if you choose to do so and don’t want to put the screenshot on Ravelry- you must email us though! All edits to your FO post must be completed by 12:00amET December 22- we cannot make exceptions since this ends so close to Christmas. We will draw for prizes on our episode following Christmas. If you want to donate to the prize giveaway, please PM Dana (danaofunwind) or Jessica (pbjstokes) on Ravelry.

Entries quick reference:

Purchasing the pattern: 1 entry
Knitting with Unwind’s mini kit or a full sized skein of the Christmas colorways: 1 entry (max of 2 entries)
Knitting two ornaments (one for you and one for a friend): 1 entry (max 15 entries, so a total of 30 ornaments)
Donating directly to Child Aid: 1 entry per $10 donated
Remember to tag #errnamentKAL on your instagram pictures!
Example of a FO post:
Pattern purchased: 1 entry
Ornaments knit: 8 for a total of 4 entries
pictures of ornaments here
Mini kit used from Unwind Yarn Company: 1 entry
Full sized skein used from Unwind Yarn Company: 1 entry
Donated $10 to ChildAid: 1 entry

Total Entries Earned: 8

Please note: The pattern will be up in advance of the KAL! Thanks for your patience!

Up & Coming:
#formaeganKAL on IG in honor of Maegan Black, the dyer behind Cyborg’s Craft Room that passed away over the weekend. As a former sponsor, we got to know her a little and have been huge fans of her dyework for years. She was a rockstar with color and will be sorely missed in the yarn community. We plan to use some of our yarn to knit something in Maegan’s memory for the KAL and hope you’ll do the same.

Just One More Craft:
Dana: “Hot Dog” Jane top from Children’s Corner pattern, made my first quilt top! (Jelly Roll Race tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co, website where you can find directions to make a jelly roll quilt of any size)
Brittany: Crybabies podcast

Announcements:

  • Dana is vending EastSide Fiber Festival on 9/17 in Nashville! If you’re local, please consider coming out; if you come around lunch you might catch both of us! 🙂
  • Into The Wool was a great success and I hope some of you will try to come next year! Dana will be coordinating alone, but with a great team of hostesses that will help run activities and make sure things go smoothly when we get there. The dates are still being finalized but it looks like it will be at the end of September, not Labor Day weekend like it has been the last two years. Be sure to join the Ravelry group to find out details as they’re posted!

Introductory price of $6 apiece while the first batch lasts, then they’ll go up to $8.
  • I’m getting ready to list more new stitched necklaces (including bigger sizes and different shapes!) at Unwind In Stitches! There is still an option to purchase a custom pendant, or you can convo me if you have something in mind you’d like me to make just for you. 🙂
