HOW IT WORKS

In 2016, Louet North American will donate 50 cents to Child’s Play Charity for every skein sold to knit/crochet a Geek-A-Long blanket! Yeah. You read that right. Every time a skein of GEMS worsted yarn is sold to a Geek-A-Long knitter or crocheter, Child’s Play gets 50 cents. Here’s some sweet math for you: If you knit 24 GAL squares with GEMS worsted yarn to create the official sized blanket, you will need 24 skeins. That means you get two squares out of two contrasting colored skeins while Child’s Play Charity receives 12 dollars just for you knitting the blanket.

Mention the Geek-A-Long when you place your yarn order. The best and easiest way is to purchase the yarn through your local yarn store or through Louet. This process also supports your LYS, so everyone wins. If your store currently stocks Louet’s GEMS worsted, they just have to mention that their customers are making GAL blankets when they place their next order. If your store doesn’t carry Louet, they can still get it for the whole store or just for you. Let your LYS know you want Louet GEMS yarn. Have the shop owner contact us and we’ll send them a media kit with all the Louet and GAL info they’ll need, including direct contact information for Pam Van Stralen of Louet, who will be handling the per-skein donations. I swear, it’s a majorly easy process.

Let your LYS know you want Louet GEMS yarn.

If pea plants and sunflowers could really protect my house from the inevitable zombie apocalypse, I might start keeping up with my garden. Actually, I still probably wouldn't, and the zombies would get me and my tombstone would say: Here lies Megan-Anne. She hated yard work so much it killed

2016 Geek-A-Long: Portal
Posted By Megan-Anne Llama  Posted On 24-Apr-2016

When I posted this week's spoiler pic on Ravelry, Bookwyrm guessed Portal right away. Although, she had trouble believing though we would make a third Portal square. (You can find the 2014 squares here and here.) All I can think of, looking at it, is Portal. But since there were already 2
