Gabby (Gabigails) of the Once Upon A Corgi Podcast and I recently discovered that we are both obsessed with all things pumpkin. So, of course we thought that a joint knit a-long was in order! We are thrilled to be joining forces to co-host this exciting KAL.

Here are the rules and some details:

  • Dates: September 1 – November 24 (Thanksgiving USA). No WIPS please!
  • Must knit or crochet something pumpkin related or with pumpkin themed yarn
  • Must be a member of the Ravelry groups to win
  • Post your FO (Finished Object) in the ‘FO thread’ to be eligible for a prize. Be sure to post in both this group AND in the Once Upon A Corgi Podcast group, to increase your chances!
  • Polydipping in other KALs is encouraged!
  • In the chatter thread, share not only what you plan to knit, but also what your favorite pumpkin recipes are, your favorite pumpkin patch photo, you name it!
  • Official Hashtag for social media: #pumpkinKAL

Have FUN and chat away! smilejack_o_lantern
