It is the first annual 2018 Game Day Make-Along. This year for the Super Bowl we thought that we would have a little fun and have a mystery make-along. Before the event even started you all blew me away with the number of people that signed up for the event. No matter what team you are rooting for let’s have a great time and make some beautiful pieces!

The game day make-along will take place on Sunday February 4, 2018. The first clue will be released at 9am EST and the last clue will be released at 6pm EST. Each hour there will be a new clue released.
All clues will be posted on their own page but you will find that page linked here. Be sure to come back every hour to see the new clue.
How do I participate in the Game Day Make-Along:
Come back to this blog page ever hour from 9am to 6pm EST to see the latest clue. Post a picture in the group on the correct post for each hour of your progress.
What are we making:
This is a mystery make-along, so we can’t tell you too much just yet. What we can tell you is that there is a knit version and a crochet version so be sure that you are reading the correct clue!
What materials do I need:
You will need 10oz of a worsted weight yarn. I have made my sample in Super Saver Ombre.and With Love Stripes. Brittani-Pearl is making hers in Super Saver Stripes and Katelyn will be making hers in Hopscotch.
You will also need a size J (6mm) crochet hook or a size 10 needle (24″ circular or straight).
Don’t forget your removable stitch markers, tapestry needle and scissors.
What can I win:
All finished project photos must be submitted by midnight MST on Sunday February 4th. Winner will be announced on Monday February 5th. US and Canadian residents only.
Don’t worry the last clue is at 6pm so you will be able to work on your project throughout the game.
We will give away one prize package for every 100 finished projects posted (one entry per person please). That means if 400 people post finished projects by midnight we will give away 4 prize packages. The more people that participate the more chances you have to win. Be sure to share the make-along with friends you think will love this.
