If you recall in my previous post, I was selling my patterns and a few custom bears to make the funds to buy more supplies. I tossed the idea to the world that if I sold enough of my patterns, maybe we could do a knit-a-long.
I guess I’m going live!
Now, I could probably google quickly “how to host a knit_a-long,” or “KAL” as the kids call it. But, I would just be watching standards, or how other people tend to do things. I usually enjoy doing things differently than others. 🙂 So, I thought I’d ask all of YOU how to do a virtual knit along.
Do I just turn on facebook live and then have you watch me knit up a teddy bear? Do I do them in sessions over the course of a few weeks or days? Obviously, we’re doing a teddy bear. But, I can knit one in five hours because I’ve done nearly four thousand of them, will people be able to keep up?
Are we gonna chit chat back and forth or am I the only one you’re going to be able to see and hear? I have SO many questions, but I’m looking forward to trying this out. My pattern is on sale for $2 in my shop, and I’m really hoping to get quite a few people to knit along making teddy bears. Heck! Maybe we could set a world record for the number of people knitting teddy bears in one day, knitting comfort for a world that is in desperate of a teddy bear. The whole dang planet could use a teddy bear right now.
I’ve already sold 15 copies, hoping we can get a bigger crowd to something that is likely going to be a mix of hilarity and fun the minute I turn that camera live. Oh! Do I use my phone? Or my laptop? Help!
