Everything is looking so great!

Just to review, we are knitting and crocheting and casting votes to see what next year’s Special Collection will be. Here again are the Special Collection 2015 options:

  1. Holla Knits Babies! – A collection of garments and accessories for babies.
  2. Warm Weather Accessories – Each Accessories Collection is pretty cold weather focused. This would be a collection of warm weather accessories to keep you decked out all summer long.
  3. Holla Knits Crochets Again! – Did you love the first HK Crochet Collection and just want more crochet patterns? You’ll love Holla Knits Crochets Again!
  4. HK Simple - HK puts out a lot of challenging patterns, but sometimes you just want some hot and simple projects? We can do that!

And so far the vote totals are:

  1. Holla Knits Babies! - 0
  2. Warm Weather Accessories - 5
  3. Holla Knits Crochets Again! - 4
  4. HK Simple – 0

Get some yarn on your needles/hooks and get voting! It’s still anyone’s game.

The prize? To be able to help choose the theme of the 2015 Special Collection! Even if you just cast one one of these projects you’ll get a vote. Finish something? 3 votes! Each finished project also qualifies for lots of grand prizes.

You’ve got until Friday August 29th to post your WIP and FO projects on Ravelry and share them in our Special Collection KCAL Votes forum. Share your plans, progress, and ask questions in our KCAL forum.

So far there hasn’t been too much action, but I’m sure now that it’s CO Day things will kick into gear!
