Hippo for Holidays Year Long KAL

Lauren Slagle

This is taking  place ALL on Instagram. Don't forget to post your WIPS!!! I love seeing them! The winner will be a photo of an FO, but feel free to post away!! =)

Knit (or crochet) a full item using the hippo for holiday colorway - a pair of adult socks, a shawl, a sweater, a hat (blanket squares don’t count). You don’t have to use the full skein, and you don’t have to “only” use that colorway, but it needs to be the “main” color and the whole item must be 100% #lolodidit yarn. Then post a photo to your public Instagram account! You must use the following tags:




+ the hippo for holiday # (see below)

I’ll pick a winner using random number generator, and the winner will win a skein of the next Hippo for a holiday colorway and a Lil Lolo to match!

If you decide to participate in the 3 holiday KAL, you will win 3 skeins of yarn. And if you participate for every single holiday, you have a chance to win a HUGE prize at the end of the year!

Stuffie along!!

Lauren Slagle

STUFFIE ALONG?! Count me in!!  This is all taking place on Instagram.
There are several people hosting stuffie alongs and you all know I'm obsessed. So let's do one too!!! The more the merrier, right!?

I cannot recommend Susan Claudino's patterns enough! I seriously have several of them laminated that's how much I knit them. Go check out @noknitsherlock for some amazing stuffie pattern ideas!! And you can double dip in her KAL!

I may have to have a #voodooyoulovememarathon against myself. 🤔 I don't think it'll be as epic as Mina's famous sock marathon, but let's have fun! If anyone wants to make #themoststuffiesever - game on!!! 💪 I am all about the #voodoopalooza!!!! .

How to participate:

1. Follow @_lolodidit
2. Post as many WIP and FO photos on Instagram as you want of any stuffie "critter" pattern, using 100% #lolodidit yarn. (Critter = anything resembling an animal, human, or mythical creature - aka, no stars or hexis)
3. Use #lolodiditstuffiealong 👈 this says "along" so crochet totally counts!! 😄

This ends THURSDAY August 31st at 9pm PST (12 midnight EST). I’ll draw for at least 1 winner on the first week of August randomly from the photos you post using the criteria above. Winning photo will be an FO, so finish those babies up! 😃

PRIZE: An epic stuffie prize package with yarn and lots of goodies!! I'll post a photo of the prize(s) in a few days so you know how epic it will be!!! 😍
