We've loved seeing your Inverleith projects take shape in the Ravelry thread and on Instagram, to provide a little extra encouragement we thought we'd let you know about the prizes! If you haven't already joined us it's not to late, Sarah cast on this week. Laura has been posting regularly here and on the Ravelry Inverleith Kal thread with lots of tutorials and tips, and chat! We love seeing your projects, so please use #ysoldainverleith or #inverleithKAL so we can find you on Instagram or Twitter. Tag your Ravelry project to be eligible for the prizes below!
Schedule of Posts (subject to change!)
July 19: Right and Left Lifted Increase Tutorial

August 2: Casting on for the neck and joining the body
August 16: Working the split hem and starting the sleeves
August 30: Binding off and finishing
September 16th: finished project deadline for prizes (winners will be randomly drawn from finished projects on Ravelry tagged inverleithkal)
Three winners will each receive a £20 gift card to www.ysolda.com
One grand prize winner will receive a copy of Ysolda's guide to sweater knitting, Little Red in the City, our adorable Ysolda sweater stitch markers and a handy Scotland needle gauge, both made by Katrinkles, plus a £50 gift card towards your next sweater project from www.ysolda.com
