Countdown Challenge!

Join us in counting down to the New Year by clearing the needles to start fresh in 2015! In this contest, you’re encouraged to turn those WIPs and UFOs into FOs and Holiday gifts! Post photos of projects finished during the Countdown Challenge in the Transient Wool Merchants Ravelry group thread to enter to win awesome prizes detailed below!


1) Be a member of the Transient Wool Merchants group on Ravelry.

2) Post a photo of the finished object to the Countdown Challenge Thread.

3) All photos must be submitted by Jan. 1. 11:59 pm EST

You can enter all of your FOs individually in the thread. Each piece off the needles is another entry! Winners will be chosen via Random Number Generator in early January and announced on the Podcast.

We’d also love to see you post your WIPs and UFOs you’re working on for the Countdown Challenge on Instagram under the hashtag #CountdownChallenge2014
