Our AlphaKAL is finished!

Waaaaay back in June of 2012, we started our Alphabetical Knit-A-Long, which shortly became nicknamed “AlphaKal”. The goal was to work our way through the alphabet, assigning a letter for each month. We began, as you do, with the letter A.

Well, here it is, 26 months later and we have reached Z. It was a lot of fun, and I know some of us wish there were a few more letters in the alphabet! It was so great to see what everyone came up with. There was everything from hats, socks, and shawls to a whale and a monster!

We had 10 finalists who completed all 26 projects on time. Of these 10, our grand prize winner was Laura, who completed an AMAZING 47 of 26 projects. Yay Laura!! She received many alpha-treats!Akal2

Here are some statistics about the KAL:

447  projects in total

423 completed projects

407 completed knitted projects

16 completed crochet projects

48 pairs of socks

51 hats

107 shawls or wraps!

We’ll be starting our next Knit-A-Long on October 1st, so stay tuned for a post about that soon!
