Hippos for Holidays OR Yeti Goes to... KAL 2019

This is a year long knit-a-long for 2019!

 

This is taking place on Instagram through the hashtags. 

ALL WINNERS will be announced through my YouTube Channel.

www.youtube.com/c/lolodidit

Don't forget to post your WIPS!!! I love seeing them! The winner will be a photo of an FO, but feel free to post away!! 

Knit (or crochet, or any fiber art) any item using ANY Hippo for Holiday colorway OR any Yeti Goes to Colorway - a pair of adult socks, a shawl, a sweater, a hat, etc. Your goal should be using at least 50g of a fingering weight yarn or the full skein of worsted or DK weight (so no ankle socks, or children’s items, if it’s a stuffed toy, make it a big one)! The whole item must be 100% #lolodidit yarn, the main colorway must be a Hippo or Yeti colorway.

It does not matter if the hippo or yeti colorway was dyed in previous years, it just matters that it’s a hippo or yeti colorway!

THE SOMEWHAT-MONTHLY KAL:

The KAL for each month starts on the 1st and ends on the last day of NEXT month. You can use ANY hippo or yeti colorway. (See the calendar below to see when you need to make sure to post a photo of each knitted item).

To enter, MAKE SURE to post your beginning photo, and your FO photo before the end of the 2 months. (See calendar list below). Both posts are important so I know you’re within the timeline.

Basically you get 2 months to knit each colorway, but must have 12 projects finished by the end of the year. The deadlines are staggered so you don’t feel so stressed to knit it within 30 days. 

Use tags:

@_lolodidit

#lolodidit

#hipposforholidays2019 OR #yetigoesto2019

 

I will draw a winner at the end of each month! The winner can pick any 1 skein that is currently available on my shop. 

 

THE YEARLY KAL:

IF you participated in each month for the entire year of 2019, you can enter this KAL! You will have 12 finished objects, each FO should have at least 2 photos, the beginning photo, and the FO already in your Instagram feed. 

**IMPORTANT** 

If you want to participate in all 12, they all need to be different colorways! 

To enter this final one, you must post by December 31, 2019 all 12 FO’s in ONE photo on your Instagram feed and use tags:

@_lolodidit

#lolodidit

#hipposforholidays2019 OR #yetigoesto2019 (or both hashtags if you used both hippos and yetis.

EVERYONE who does this for a full year is a winner in my book! You will all receive 1 skein of an exclusive Hippo for 2019 colorway..

KAL FAQs

 Can I use the Hippo I knit for December 2018 for the first entry for 2019? Yes!

Can I knit a Roxie the Hippo for the KAL? Absolutely! I ask for approx 50g of fingering weight. You will use approximately that amount for the pattern.

Can I double dip in other KALs or even other KALs you are hosting? Yes, double dip, triple dip! At your heart's content! 

I plan on knitting more than one hippo or colorway project in a month, can I enter more than one project? Heck yes! I want you to knit as many as you want to!

I forgot to post my cast on photo on the 1st, am I disqualified? No way, post 2 photos within the 2 month time frame. I'd like to see a photo as close to the beginning of your project as possible. 

I don't have Instagram. I'm sorry, this is an Instagram only KAL.

Can I knit one big project, like a blanket, instead of 12 small projects? Yes!
