Let me tell you, the response I’ve gotten from Inis Oírr has been awesome. I’m excited that you’re excited (seriously), and I so can’t wait to see everybody’s progress as they go along. I don’t have a kid, but I imagine that this is what it must feel like to birth something out into the world (heh).
All joking aside, I am quite chuffed at the love I’ve been getting for this pattern. So, Jody over at Knotions (where the full pattern is published) decided to have a Knit-a-long and contest to celebrate!
The KAL has already started, and you can join too! The main hub if it is being held on the Knotions group over on Ravelry here. I’m acting as general cheerleader for everybody participating (and there’s already pictures up!), and I would love to see yours too, so head on over and join in.
You can read all about & enter the contest here. Just leave a comment letting us know what colour of Valley Yarns Northampton is your favourite, and you’re entered to win 10 skeins to make your own Inis Oírr with. I made mine with Fawn, and it was really lovely working with the yarn (which Webs sponsored for me to design the pattern with!). The contest is open until August 28th so be sure to leave your comment soon to be entered to win.
