It is with great excitement we share information on the 6 Bits Storybooks First Knit A Long (Kal)! 

Our UNEARTH Kal is an opportunity to join in for encouragement as we knit projects from our first issue. This time of fun together begins November 2, 2015 and lasts until January 2, 2016. 

Categories that are open to all participants:

The Complete Story

For those knitters who start and finish an entire project form Issue 1 UNEARTH. Enter as many Finished Objects as you like in this category, they just need to start and end on the official KAL dates.

A Progressive Story

This time of year there are so many things happening, our attention and time have many demands that may keep us from finishing projects before the end of the KAL. To keep that fact from deterring knitters from joining, we want to embrace that and use it as a starting point! So start your project on November 2nd and simply be proud of what you do knit! Share your progress in this thread and let that be your story! 

Character Focus 

For every issue we want to dig deeper in to the story behind a particular yarn. For UNEARTH our special character is Infinite Twist. This category is for anything knitters want to create using Helix yarn. Cate Carter-Evans will be popping in this thread to share as she knits an extra long version of Cairns in the beautiful badlands colourway.


What a great way to plug in too! Use the hashtags: #UnearthKal #6BitsStorybooks for any and all work you are doing. Be sure to tag us as @6.Bits.Storybooks too! That is the fastest way to grab our attention and we definitely want to see what you are up to!

In addition to choosing winners from each of the above categories, we are excited about a different twist as an option for any and everyone to plug in to win prizes! 

The Illustrate Kindness Category

Wonder how that works? Simple! First be sure you are following us. Use the hashtags on Instagram to see what others are knitting. In the comments below their post cheer them on! This is an awesome way to join in the Unearth KAL even if you can't knit a project. It also weaves our stories together a bit more intentionally! 

There will be 1 winner from each category except the Illustrate Kindness. We plan to choose 3 winners from that one! So be sure to use the hashtags when posting so everyone can see your beautiful knitting skills and cheer you on in your project!
