IT'S HAPPENING! THE CRAFT-A-LONG CHALLENGE IS KICKING OFF Wednesday, April 26!
The conversation started on Zoom with a sweater I want to knit and have wanted
to knit for almost 8 years - The Adventurous by Joji Locatelli (above). It looks so challenging to me that I put it in a folder entitled 5-year-projects - as in "It would take me 5 years to complete." When I started talking about this project and how it intimidated me because of its cables and duster length, others began talking about projects that intimidated them. One thing led to another...
The Challenge kicks off Wednesday, April 26, on Zoom - virtually. It will run through Nov. 22, which will be Completed Project Zoom Show Off Day! I'm pulling prizes as we speak - and there will be LOTS to encourage people to finish their most intimidating project!
So here's what you do. Grab your Robin's Promise Yarn and the pattern that challenges YOU! The pattern that challenges me may not challenge you. Now, register yourself HERE. Each person who registers will get a complementary gift. Each person who creates a Ravelry project will receive a complementary gift.
We've had questions about when to Cast-On your Challenge project. If you have a complicated cast on, no one expects you to do that on the Zoom call. Please consider the entire day of Wednesday, April 26, as cast on day. Tag @robinspromise in your social media, so we can see you have cast on.

FIRST TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE
Shannon made it across the finish line first with her very first sweater - All the Love by Joji Locatelli. She made it with the DK base Two Sparrows in the Female Cardinal colorway.
SECOND TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE
Theresa came in 2nd with her Gr8 Raglan Sweater by Jessie Maed Designs. She learned a new sleeve technique. She had to make the sleeves first and then knitted her sweater from the bottom up.
