Watchalong: CAT EDITION

So far, we’ve had about 225 works-in-progress posted on Instagram, with dozens more on Twitter. Far too many to host here – but let’s hit some highlights.

This week – The Cats of Steotchalong

Steotchalong 4: Watch My WIP

S4

Steotchalong 4’s first pattern drops Monday.  Be sure to check out the official landing page for complete guidance and updates.

Like last year, we’re going to run a contest for those of you playing along at home.  Unlike last year, this year there will not be just one prize for the first person to correctly guess the pattern.

This year we’re giving away 4 prizes for best work-in-progress pics.  Last year we had more than 500 WIPs appear on Instagram and across the webs.  Let’s let a thousand WIPs bloom in 2016.

Post your work-in-progress picture using hashtag #steotchalong on Twitter or Instagram – to our Facebook page – or in the Steotch.com forums.  Awards for WIP pics will be given in four categories:

  • Funniest
  • Cutest
  • Daringest
  • Dankest Place

The winners will receive notoriety beyond compare, and Steotch Do-It-Your-Ownself Cross Stitch Kits (we have new designs coming soon) (US/Canada only – international winners will receive digital downloads from the Steotch Etsy store of equal or greater value).

As always, we are counting on all of you to not take any of this too seriously.  We will choose the winners based entirely on our own whims, and our decisions will be final.

Have fun, be safe, don’t hurt each other.
