Neckwear KAL Prizes

Today I'm excited to share the prizes for the 2016 Blue Peninsula Neckwear KAL—I hope you like them as much as I do. The KAL starts September 7, so there's still plenty of time to decide on yarns and patterns.

Prize #1: Three skeins of Louet Gems Fingering in Linen Grey, enough to make my Notch shawl:

Prize #2: A skein of Luna Grey Fiber Arts Celeste in Razzmatazz, 400 yards of fingering weight superwash merino:

Prizes #3 and #4: Notions Notecards, designed exclusively for Ravelry by Jill Zielinski/Knitterella:

The yarns will be awarded to projects finished by the end of the KAL. But the cards will be awarded to posts in the discussion thread—once at the end of the KAL and once midway through. This way, even if you don't finish your project, you still have a chance to win a prize. It's my way of saying "thanks" to everybody who participates. 

Of course, just making something you love is reward in itself. But maybe these prizes will provide a little extra incentive to join the fun!

I hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of summer. It's been mostly hot and humid here in Massachusetts, not the best knitting weather. But the other day, while I was knitting next to a lake at lunch, something about the breeze and rustling leaves whispered, "fall." 

And early this morning, in the backyard, I spotted this:

I'm sitting in front of a fan as I type this—it feels 100% like summer today. But it won't be long before I stop using my Notch shawl as a photo backdrop and start wearing it, right?

How's your end-of-summer knitting going? Are you gearing up for fall projects?
