The Darfur group at Ravelry has been moderating the Pencil cases for Sudan -KAL/CAL since the beginning of the year. The results are great - by the end of January we had about 50 cases done and sent to HELPSudan, I don't even know how many we have now!
But the KAL is not over yet. It will end on the 31st of March, so now's the time for the last push (or better said knit).
To give you all a little extra incentive to finish your pencil cases, or cast on just a few more, there'll be a voting on the most beautiful pencil case in the KAL's Flickr group with some lovely prizes!
Here's how it works. To participate you just upload your photo to Flickr and share it with the group (there's guidance on the group forum). To vote, just comment on the picture! Doesn't matter what you say, maybe a little compliment, the number of the comments will count. Which ever photo gets the most comments will win! And - which ever photo gets the second most comments will also win!
The first prize will be a gorgeous Swift knitting bag in Cocoa/Pink from the big-hearted Andrea (Ravelry link). The first runner-up will get a $50 gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe , generously donated by Wendy. There might even be a surprise for the second runner-up!
So please get knitting/crocheting and share your photos! The voting will end on the 12th April 2009, so you'll have time to post your pictures as well as comment.
