How to join in the conversation:
One of the best parts of a knitalong is meeting other knitters and feeling as though you are a part of an exclusive group. Even though knitting is an individual craft the knitting community is so strong if you connect with others you’ll never feel alone.
I wanted to be able to offer people multiple places to connect based on what platform they liked to hang out on. Therefore, I put together a Facebook group for those that feel more comfortable there and a Ravelry group for those that love Ravelry. You can also interact on Instagram!
- Join the Glimmer Crop KAL Facebook Group conversation here.
- Join the Whimsy North Ravelry Group conversation here.
- Share your photos on Instagram and use #glimmercropkal and tag @whimsynorth in your photo for a chance to be featured.
To make this knitalong extra fun I pulled together some awesome prizes from my maker friends! These makers generously donated items for me to give to those participating and interacting with the groups and Instagram each week. I put together a video showing off all the prizes. You can check it out below.

Every Sunday I will pull all the names of those that have posted a photo for that week and then draw one winner. At the end of the knitalong on Sunday, June 21st anyone that has posted a finished Glimmer Crop in any of the above platforms will be entered in to win the Grand Prize! See my video for details.
Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday this year!
Happy Knitting! – Margaret
