FO Prizes

It seems that all I do these days is blog about the #hapsarehappeningKAL, but those days are numbered. The deadline to get photos of your finished haps to the FO thread is next Monday (8th August). We will then draw winners at random from the list of projects.

There are already examples of all 13 patterns in the FO thread and it has been a real privilege to follow the stages of their development and to see how the same pattern can look so different in different colours or yarns.

So what can you win? These are the prizes to date and there may be others to add.

First on the list is 3 skeins of Coop Knits Socks Yeah! yarn generously donated by Rachel Coopey. This is more than enough to make your own Uncia, or socks if you'd rather. Socks Yeah! comes in 50g skeins in 10 marled colours and is 75% super wash merino, 25% nylon.


Next up is 2 skeins of Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply in Pebble Beach donated by Fyberspates. The variegated brown-grey palette has attracted considerable discussion within the group, being described as 'magic yarn' by some as the number of shades is greater than those you can see in the photograph.

Lucy Hague has generously donated a copy of her stunning Celtic Cable Shawls ebook as a prize. I know from reading through the forums that many knitters have come across Lucy for the first time, and I think that this collection will give huge enjoyment and satisfaction to the winner.

You could also win your choice of product from the AndSewToKnit Etsy store. I have the honour of owning a wonderful AndSewToKnit apron for working at shows, and it's beautiful and still looks great 5 years on. Choose from yarn bowls, knot bags and more. Many, many thanks to Yvette for this lovely prize!

The final general prize is a set of pattern downloads from the designers that contributed to The Book of Haps. That's a whole lot of knitting! 

If you've finished a Nut-Hap and posted a photo in the Nut-Hap FO thread, you'll be in with a chance to win this rather splendid tea towel, donated by Frome-based illustrator designer-maker Mary Kilvert.


If you're ever in our neck of the woods, Mary's shop, right at the top of Catherine Hill, is well worth a visit to see all of the wonderful objects bearing her designs. Oh, and you can order online, so if you fancy your own handmade sheep, sheep mug, or notebook......

Finally, if you've double dipped into our KAL and the Knit British bookofhapsalong, you could win a copy of Lucy Hague's Illuminated Knits ebook and a skein of Yarns From The Plain hand-dyed yarn. These won't be drawn until the Knit British KAL finishes.

We are enormously grateful to everyone who has donated prizes here and throughout the KAL. It has added an extra dimension to what has been a truly inspiring couple of months.

If you're still deep in WIP territory, you have a few days to power through, so drop everything else and get knitting!
