Cardiac Red-Along KAL/CAL 2015

cardiac red-along National-Wear-Red-Day

Hey, ladies & gents, welcome to our July 1st-September 30th KAL/CAL. For this three month period the focus of the KAL/CAL will be to knit and/or crochet using the color red in some significant way in your projects with cardiac awareness in mind. Each week you will be indoctrinated with some cardiac health (and most likely diabetes) “fun-facts”. Please do not consider the info given during the cardiac-along as a replacement to seeing your doctor if you think you may be having cardiac (or diabetes) issues.

We have to awesome cohosts for the Red-along: TanyaMarie of the Sampler Girl podcast, TheTurboKnitter64of The Turbo knitter podcast, and packyknits1 of packyknits design group. You can double/triple dip in all these groups, as long as you are a member of the group you are posting in. Rules may vary between different groups, so make sure to read the rules before posting in each group!

packyknits1 is taking pre-orders for her Hearts-A-Flutter yarn right now. Proceeds will go to Cardiac Research at the Mayo Clinic. You have the choice of Fingering yarn and Worsted. Just choose from the drop down menu.

WIPs and FOs will both be eligible to be drawn for prizes in PHN for the Cardiac Red-Along. The way that you become eligible for prizes is to join the Ravelry group and post a picture in the Cardiac Red-Along Thread. Only one WIP picture per project per week and one FO picture per FO per week. If you already had a WIP picture earlier in the week for the project, you may still put up an FO picture for the same project if you finish it that week.

Projects must not be finished prior to July 1st, although they do not have to be finished before September 30th. It does not matter when you start the project.

Prizes will be posted as announced; at this time we have the following:

1) a pattern at a value of $10 or less to three different winners from TrueCanuckGirl

2) a $10 pattern for one winner from VictorianStudio

3) knitting needles from lizknitwiz47

4) Knit Red pattern book

5) Crochet Red pattern book

If you want to share your images on instagram use #phnredkal2015.

Okay, now that the rules and the disclaimer are out there, let’s have fun and knit or crochet something RED!

God Bless,
