2008 3rd Quarter KAL Winner - Designer Theme

The votes are in and we have a winner! The designer chosen by you for the 2008 3rd quarter SKC KAL is Joan McGowan-Michael. If you need another look at some of her designs, you can check out the cool mosaic rchrispy put together over on the final voting thread at the Ravelry Group. This will be our very first designer themed KAL so there are a few new things to note this time around:

  • Official KAL dates: August 1 - September 30
  • You may knit any pattern by this designer that you like, whether it’s from her book Knitting Lingerie Style, from a magazine or similar publication, or even a pattern purchased from her website White Lies Designs.

We look forward to all of your lovely knits over at the Ravelry Group! Come join us! If you have any questions, you may contact either rchrispy or myself (knittymuggins). Happy Knitting!

Nominations are open for the 2008 3rd Quarter KAL over on the Ravelry Group

Hello Sexy Knitters!

Just a little announcement here for those of you who have not made the move over to The Official Sexy Knitter's Club on Ravelry yet. Nominations are officially open for the next 2 weeks (July 11, 2008 - July 25, 2008) to decide on projects for our next KAL. This quarter's theme is "Designers" and will be the first SKC KAL held entirely over at Ravelry. We'll continue to use this blog for announcements, but will no longer be posting here. Come join us on Ravelry if you haven't already and put in your nomination for the next KAL. Look forward to meeting you there!

We're Moving!!!

Hi All -- To keep all of you up-to-date.....

I have asked rchrispy to join the SKC administrators and she has graciously agreed to come on board :-) Between KnittyMuggins, rchrispy, and I, here is where we've decided to go with the SKC....

First, in case any of you aren't aware, there has been quite a bit of discussion on Ravelry regarding moving the Sexy Knitters Club to Ravelry. After some discussion, the other admins and I feel that moving the SKC to Ravelry is a good idea admin-wise as well as for our members as it will eliminate the need for members to request posting privileges before each new knit along. For those of you who are not yet Ravelry members, don't panic! The transition from the current SKC site to Ravelry will be slow enough to allow all those SKC members who aren't yet on Ravelry a chance to get in/on/withit! I'm not sure what the approximate wait time is for a Ravelry invite but I hear it's much shorter than it was several months ago -- I'm guessing no more than a couple of weeks.

Second, in order to avoid aministrative chaos, we have decided to form an Official Sexy Knitters Club Ravelry group. This group will be the new home of the original Sexy Knitters Club where things will stay pretty much the same as they are now with the exception of a few changes regarding the way future knit alongs are conducted. We will keep everybody up to date regarding these changes on the Official SKC board so be sure to check there often.

Third, we would like to encourage all current SKCers who haven't yet signed up for Ravelry to do so now so that you can receive your invite before the next knit along begins -- with all the wonderful KAL suggestions, the next KAL promises to be a doozie!

Finally, rchrispy, KnittyMuggins, and I would like to thank each and every one of you who have contributed to the conversation over on Ravelry over the past several weeks. It's members like you who keep the SKC strong and very much alive :-)
