Spring for Babies KAL/CAL ~ Prize Info

Considering the numerous charities throughout the world, I will leave the choice of charity up to you. I am a firm believer in Charity at Home and will accept knits for neighbors, etc to be included in this KAL/CAL.

All you have to do is fill out this form, letting me know your intent to participate as well are your email address (in case you win, otherwise your email is safe and will not be shared) and post pictures of your FOs in the new DTP Flickr Group. The DTP Flickr Group is by invitation only, so you will be prompted to request invitation which I will approve ASAP – if it’s been a few days and you haven’t received your invite, let me know and I will get on top of it ;)

The KAL/CAL will end and the drawing will be held on May Day – May 1, 2009 (click link for time converter).

ETA: This may seem like a lot to do for a contest but look at the prizes we’ve managed to wrangle up:

20 feb – I am actively seeking prize donations, so stay tuned for details. I have one prize for the Prize Drawing a skein of Hand Dyed (by me) yarn.

  1. Well, I’ve been hoping to see something that would give me inspiration to finish that charity project I had been working on for Newborn’s In Need. I actually stopped it because I was aggrivated with the person in charge of my school’s “chapter” of it. (Bad reason, I know) But I’ve wanted to find something that’s reason to continue it and, well, here it is!
    Now, if I don’t finish it by May 1st, I’m not going to be very happy.
