kal: be kind kal 2019

be kind kal 2019

we’re back for year three! who else is tired and feeling like some self-love could go a long way right now?

created in 2017 as an attempt to create some gentle structure for us all to knit while honouring the fact that a lot of us are often running on fumes in today’s busy world, the be kind kal (#bekindkal) was born!

it’s often a lot easier to be kinder to others than we are to ourselves, so i would gently encourage you to use this challenge as a time to be sweet to yourself. but feel free to also use it as an excuse to be kind to dear ones in your life as well. here’s how it’ll work:

prizes this year include digital gift certificates for my webstore and ravelry designs - $5, $10, and $25 will each be drawn for both online spaces, meaning a total of 6 prizes are available to be won! as those of you who participated last year may remember, all participants are likely to end up with some bonus too…

this year, we won’t be using ravelry to track progress, because i personally don’t feel like i have the capacity to properly oversee conversations over there in any sort of effective/responsible manner. so please be sure to use #bekindkal on instagram if you’re a user of that platform, and email me photos of any finished objects and/or links to ravelry project pages so i can keep track of how many times you should be entered into prize draws. don’t forget that you need to be signed up to be eligible, so do that and get ready for your bi-weekly email dispatches (that’s once every two weeks, not twice a week)!
