Otis & Phyllis Knitalong - March & April 2015

Oh, how I love a Knitalong (KAL)! Casting on the same pattern as a group of other knitters, and sharing pictures and advice as you go. It gives a real sense of camaraderie! Over on the Ravelry thread, you'll see that knitters are sharing pictures of the yarns they are planning to use, as well as a few "in progress" photos already (some of these knitters are QUICK!).

So this is how it works...
You choose your yarn and cast on either Otis (left) or Phyllis (right), both of which are from Rachel's new book, CoopKnits Socks Volume 2. Then you need to head over to the CoopKnits Ravelry group (have you joined yet? You really should!) and share a picture to tell us what you're up to in the Otis & Phyllis KAL thread.

Once you've done that, you will already be entered for one of the spot prizes of a free Rachel Coopey sock pattern download (you will be able to select from the single sock patterns in Rachel's Ravelry Store)! Rachel will be giving away a few pattern prizes as we go through March and April. You simply need to cast on and post a picture to the the KAL thread! You don't even need to finish your socks to win a pattern prize (great for us slower knitters...)

Keep knitting, and do chat along with the other KAL-ers! And then, once you've finished your pair of socks, post another picture to the KAL thread. Then you will be entered for one of the wonderful yarn prizes...

These gorgeous skeins are up for grabs for knitters who finish their Otis or Phyllis socks before the end of April 2015. West Yorkshire Spinners, Three Irish Girls and The Knitting Goddess! What beauties!

Happy knitting!
