Howdy, everyone! I’m happy to say that I’m participating in this year’s Indie Designer Gift-A-Long!

What is that, you say?

The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 6-week knit-a-long and crochet-a-long of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by 335(!!!) independent designers. From November 19th at 8pm (EST) through November 27th at 11:59 pm (EST), the participating designers will be discounting some of their knitting or crochet patterns at 25%.

This is a great way to pick up a knitting or crochet pattern you’ve had your eye on, or discover a new designer and some great new patterns. The Gift-A-Long is also a wonderful way to promote and support independent designers everywhere during this holiday season.

There are numerous knit-a-longs (KALs) and crochet-a-longs (CALs) to participate in as a crafter, as well as prizes of all sorts that are given out! The Gift-A-Long KAL/CALs will run from November 19 through December 31, 2015. To find out more about all of the designers that are participating, as well as all of the KAL/CAL/prize details, please visit the Ravelry page devoted to the Gift-A-Long HERE.

When I was deciding which of my patterns to include in the Gift-A-Long, I focused on designs that could be knit up quickly as holiday gifts, since we all know how quickly those last few weeks of the year seem to fly, right?

They are (in no particular order):

Zuni Shawl

Lakeview Hat

Grace’s Sweater

Avery’s Sweater

Syringa Shawl

Avian Shawl

Winesap Mitts

and the Shipshape Shawl

To get the 25% discount on my Gift-A-Long patterns, just purchase the patterns you want directly from my Ravelry shop between 8 pm US EST on Thursday, November 19th and 11:59 pm on Friday, November 27th, using the coupon code giftalong2015 at checkout.

Then join one of the KAL/CAL threads on Ravelry and away you go!

Here’s to a fun and productive season of knitting and crocheting!
