Join the 'WEEKEND' knit along! / by jen geigley

Knit a project in a weekend from the book, 'WEEKEND.'

Just a few weeks ago, my new book 'WEEKEND: Simple, Modern Knits' was released. Now it's time for us to knit something together, at the same time, sharing our pics and inspiring each other to make cool things. Are you in? It won't take long! Let's do this.

The WEEKEND KAL will start on Thursday, October 1st and end on Friday, October 30th.

Choose a project to make from WEEKEND – any project is fine! Enter your info HERE to be eligible to win the giveaway at the end of the KAL. You also must have shared photos of a project in progress during the KAL to be eligible.

One lucky KAL participant will win an awesome prize!! (So, go sign up.)


You can choose any project you'd like to knit from the book WEEKEND. (Projects from other sources will not qualify for the KAL.)

To be eligible to win a prize, you must share photos of your chosen KAL project on the HEYJENRENEE Ravelry group board, which you can find here. (Feel free to share on social media as well, using the hashtag #weekendKAL.)

It's okay if you have already started a project from WEEKEND. Take in-progress pics and share them with us!

You may jump in any time during the month of October.

You may knit more than one project.

If you don't finish your project by the end of the KAL, it's okay! Participation is enough! Let's have FUN and make cool things.


Start with the KAL discussion threads in the HEYJENRENEE Ravelry group. Right away, you'll find a thread where you can say hello and chat about what projects you have decided to make, the yarns you'll use, etc. This is the fun part! Don't be shy. I'll be in there, too. :)

Check out everyone's photos by searching for and using the hashtag #weekendKAL. You can find me posting all the things (all the time) on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. (Find my social media links at the the top of my blog/website.)

I will be posting about the KAL on my blog (and sharing your pics!) throughout the month of October.


'WEEKEND: Simple, Modern Knits' is available in several formats. You can purchase the hard copy + free PDF ebook on my website under 'Shop'. You can also find the hard copy at local yarn shops, or Purchase individual pattern PDFs on Ravelry, as well as the full PDF ebook. It's also available on Kindle and iBooks! Find all of the links right HERE.

Last but not least, I wanted to thank you all for being so incredibly awesome. Thank you to the blog readers who have stuck by me from the start. Thank you to the yarn stores who have expressed enthusiasm and support for someone they have never met in real life. Thank you for sharing your photos and sweet words on your blogs and social media. It's a thrill to hear that you're enjoying the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. I love you guys.  xx.
