As I mentioned Wednesday (and made official in yesterday's newsletter - subscribe already! - and on Instagram), I've decided to try a photo hop on Instagram. I have friends who did the #sewphotohop, and it looked like lots of fun, but I don't sew. Maybe I haven't been looking in the right places, but I haven't found any knitting-focused hops, pads, or pods other than my Geeky Girls Knit #ggkcraftypad, and I'm not quite ready for a whole month yet. A week seems doable right now (the kids start back to school next Wednesday). Could you handle a week? It seems like a fun way to get to know other Instagrammers and make the run up to my birthday super fun.

Care to join me? I plan to give away a pattern a day of your choice, plus one of you lucky Instagrammers will win enough MissBabs Yowza to knit your own Caught in the Rigging cowl.

All you need to do is
  1. follow me on Instagram
  2. repost the photo below (I use the Repost app)
  3. tag your photos with the hashtag #kdknitphotohop

So, what's the deal with that hashtag?
  • kd - that would be me, Kathleen Dames
  • knit - we all love knitting, right? Right!
  • photo - fun photos on Instagram
  • hop - we'll have a hopping good time
Put it all together, and you've got #kdknitphotohop!

And here's the prompt list in case you can't read my handwriting:

 9/7 sparkle
 9/8 begins with K
 9/9 JOY
9/10 knitting
9/11 Jane Austen
9/12 hearts
9/13 Birthday!

Hop on over to Instagram and follow me, so I can follow you back, and let's have some fun!

I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by, and happy knitting!
