Toy Along 2015

It’s time for the Pen, Hook and Needles 4th annual toy along. Wow! Where has the time gone? Here is what you need to know :). We are co-hosting this year’sToy Along with the wonderful Victorianstudio who is Maureen who is the lovely host of the Victorianstudio Podcast, Pharmagurumi, who is Mary, the lovely host of the Yarnaceuticals podcast, and Blackhorse, who is Kim, the lovely host of the me, my dog, and some yarnpodcast, and we’re super excited about it. The rules will be very similar in each of the groups, though there may be some slight differences. All groups will have many terrific prizes.

Pegeen the Whimsical Turtle

Here are our rules:

The CAL/KAL will begin October 1, 2015 and end December 31, 2015. Projects can have been started at any time, but must have been worked on within this time period in order to be eligible for prizes.
Projects and chatter will all be in the same thread, but only WIPs and FOs will be eligible for prizes. 🙂

• Projects may be knitted or crocheted
• Toys can be used as gifts, donated to theturboknitter64’s ambulance, toys for tots or other charities or put to whatever use you see fit
• We will allow double dipping of projects, on our end of the CAL/KAL I believe this will be the same for our co-hosts, but check out their group rules to be sure. 🙂
• Please feel free to tell others about the toy along. The more the merrier.

We will have featured patterns in our group that will merit 2 chances at a prize as an FO only (FranciscanGypsy patterns)

All WIPs and all FOs will have one chance at a prize, except Featured patterns FOs which will have two chances as mentioned above.
One WIP per project per week. One FO per project.
