Super Summer - and a Sponsor!

How's everyone's summer going so far? Are you making excellent progress on your projects, or is it too hot to knit?

With the launch of ticket sales a few short weeks ago, we've continued beavering along behind the scenes at the GLYC HQ to make sure this inaugural event is as fun and jam-packed as it can be!

Over the next few weeks we'll be letting you in on some of the fabulous prizes we've been able to get our hands on for the after-party, and a contest for you early-bird ticket holders!

In the meantime, please welcome one of our first sponsors:

A Canadian company from the knitting-mecca of Toronto, Soak makes liquid laundry soap for all your delicates and especially your handmade wonders like knitting, handspun, weaving, stitching and quilting! Soak is biodegradable, eco-friendly, phosphate-free and comes in a variety of scents, including Scentless, for your sensitive side.

Participants in the Great London Yarn Crawl will be getting a mini-Soak in their goodie bags to try it out for themselves (and yes, you CAN get Soak in the UK!). And those of you who make it to the after-party will be in the door prize draw for one of their beautiful Soakboxes!

The Soakbox is called Double Pointe Pink and comes with a skein of beautiful Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport Solid yarn, a pattern for fingerless mittens by designer Fiona Ellis, an Essie nail polish, and a small bottle each of Soak wash and Handmaid, their new hand cream.

Check out all the other Soakboxes here and stay tuned for news about our contest for early-bird ticket holders!
