First for some exciting 2012 Oh! Loops news: We had our first international sale!!!! Two skeins of Oh! Loops yarn made their way to Norway just before Christmas. We're not gunna lie we were pretty stocked by this!!!
We also mailed out the first skeins from our Yarnie AA club subscriptions!! "Blue Jean Baby Queen" has been happily received! If you want to see the teaser photos you can do so here. The second skein from the collection will be making its way to our subscribers January 18th. If you missed out on the first club subscription don't fret, you still have plenty of time to get in on the March/April/May round. Orders are open until February 28th.
1.) You can post FO's in both groups (Oh! Loops and Down CEllar Studio Podcast) and therefore have two chances to win the big prize packages (the same person cannot win both however) but this is not mandatory, you need only to post in one thread to be entered. Please remember though that if you decide to post FO's in both groups you must first become a member of that group. We are all about supporting each other.
2.) To win the prizes you must complete all 4 projects!!!
3.) Each project must be completed in the assigned time frame in order for you to move on to the next month's project. For example, for January's project you cannot cast on until January 1st and you must be finished with your project and have FO pictures with a link to your project page uploaded to the thread by January 31st. The January thread will be locked at midnight PST on the final day. Each new month will follow this same outline.
4.) For the projects you will be asked to challenge yourselves with new techniques, new colors and new patterns (all chosen at your discretion) but you will only be asked to purchase something new for the fourth and final project.
6.) For fun there will also be a separate thread for extra credit. If you choose to participate in the extra credit activities you would post the appropriate information in the extra credit thread. The extra credit thread will only be in the Oh! Loops group page (this does not mean it is only open to current Oh! Loops members, its just easier to manage from one location, so simply join and post away) If you decide to participate in the extra credit you will have a third chance to win another little prize. This prize will be different/separate from the actual KAL prize package.
Well that is all for today, we hope you all join in on our "Out of this World" knitting mission. Bye for now and Happy New Year from Oh! Loops!!!
