Summertide MKAL Sponsors – Thank You!

There are still three weeks left in the Summertide MKAL, but since the last clue came out last week, we’re already starting to see some breathtaking FOs! (spoiler alert!!)

This has been one of the most exciting KALs we’ve ever done: so many projects, so much camaraderie, and an incredible buzz. Now that the finish line is in sight, I wanted to take a moment to thank the amazing sponsors who have contributed some delicious prizes. I think all the eventual winners will be thrilled.


Skein Australia is providing two skeins of their gorgeous hand-dyed yarn. Kristen is such an artist, and her yarn was very popular with participants. The guest post she did for us about pairing colours really got the creative juices going and will continue to be a great resource even after the MKAL is officially finished.


Meadow Yarn, our much-loved podcast sponsor and a loyal supporter of Curious Handmade. They stepped it up yet again with a generous £50 Gift Voucher. Anj also contributed a brilliant guest post on colour pairings and there are many beautiful Tosh Merino Light Summertide Shawls nearing completion.

Maria Elena Bliss creates wonderful project bags. She’s giving us an XL Bliss Bag. One lucky knitter will have the perfect place to store their big wooly winter project!

We all get into KALs for the fun and support, but special prizes like this just add so much to the energy. I can’t thank my sponsors enough for their generosity. So if you haven’t finished yet, get knitting! One of these beauties could be yours!
