"knit with the palace" KAL

time to dig out your special crystal palace yarn balls and get knitting with them. this kal will be a little different. your projects have to be knit/crochet with a crystal palace yarns product. but, what? if you use your yarn, then you won't have any more?? well, no problem there! the winner will get to pick what's behind door #1 or door #2!

door #1 grand prize
12 fulled bags (a book filled with wonderful felted bags)
plus enough yarn to knit a couple of the projects

or

door #2 grand prize
8 balls of CPY yarn

and knowing susan, she will probably throw in more prizes at the end!

rules are simple
1. project must be made with CPY yarn.
2. project must use at least 50 gm of yarn.
3. one entry per project. one prize per person.
4. KAL will start on april 1, 2011 and will end may 31, 2011.
5. post progress photo and finished project photo by june 4, 2011. tag post with "kwtp"

eta: no double dipping between the "knit with the palace" and the "coquille" kal. sorry.

kal name was suggested by debi (who tortures me endlessly....)

Hi all! I just joined and this looks like fun. I literally just got back from the yarn store with my Mini Mochi in the lovely color 306 ( a beautiful reddish/orange colorway!) I planning to make the Mobius Necklace and earrings from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders.

ok I am ready to start pulling yarn out of the bins - ha - if only I could finish that scarf/hoody thing that NEEDS to be done by next month instead of starting new things.
