Knitting News, Notes and Events

PalKal 2018

Basic Rules

  • Official cast on/bind off dates: June 15-August 15
  • One part of your project must be from a podcaster. The podcaster has to have produced an episode within the last year, so no retired podcasts, sorry.
  • No yardage requirement.
  • Your finished object can be entered more than once if more than one element is from a podcaster.
  • You cannot reuse a project bag for multiple entries. The same applies for patterns, stitch markers, etc.
  • Entries must be put into the finished object threads. Each element of the project that qualifies gets it's own entry.
  • When you post an FO, please tell us what element qualifies for the PALKAL and which podcast you are supporting.
  • Feel free to ask me questions on the Ravelry group forum for PALKAL Chatter.

This episode of Actually Knitting is brought to you by Bijou Basin Ranch.

Bijou Basin Ranch is a family-owned ranch in western Colorado. In addition to fiber from our own herd of full blooded Tibetan yak, we work with other yak ranchers in the US as well as Asia to source top quality yak fiber for our luxury yarns. We also work with various indie dyers who create beautiful can't-get-anywhere-else colorways for yarn lovers! Use the coupon code on their website for 15% off in their online store (excluding qiviut or paco-vicuna) and free shipping! This generous offer will be good through September 6, 2018.

I'm still working out a running a bit.
