Last week I announced the Olga’s Vest pattern as the next Knit Along (KAL).  We are going to get started on this KAL this Saturday, May 10th, 2014.  The KAL will end on Sunday, June 15th, 2014.  This should give us a little over a month to work on this versatile pattern so that we can wear it this summer.

The Olga’s Vest KAL will take place in the Grace Akhrem Ravelry group, where we can post questions, comments, pictures and more.  There will be three prize winners for this KAL.  The first place winner will receive a signed copy of Natural Nursery Knits by Erika Knight and a Knit for Baby kit that includes two skeins of Erika Knight British Blue Wool (one skein in Milk and one skein in Pretty) as well as three pattern PDFs of the winners choice from the Grace Akhrem Ravelry store.  Second and third place winners will receive three pattern PDFs of the winners choice from the Grace Akhrem Raverly store.

In order to to be eligible to win one of the prizes you must be a KAL participant who has posted a finished photo of your Olga’s Vest.  You must have started on or after the KAL start date and finish before or on the KAL end date.  You must post a picture of your finished Olga’s Vest on or before the KAL end date in the Ravelry group.  The more active you are in the KAL the higher your chances are for winning.

Sharing your work in progress photos in encouraged.  You can share them in the Ravelry group in the KAL thread, but you can also share them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.  Make sure to use the #OLGASVESTKAL  The more you post and share and the more of an active KAL participant you are the higher your chances are for winning.
