2012 WIPocalypse

Here are the rules for the 2012 Wipocalypse: 1) To sign up, leave a comment on this post with your blog address. International bloggers are welcome. 2) Sometime shortly before the start of 2012, make a list of the projects you will be focusing on. Add to and adjust this list throughout the year as you desire. There are no restrictions regarding new starts for this SAL. If you feel the desire to start a piece in 2012, add it to your list! 3) On each full moon (or thereabouts), post your progress photos to your site – even if your progress was slower than you hoped. Label that post with “WIPocalypse” to make it easy for me to find. 4) Once you’ve posted, come over to my blog and find my full moon post, and comment that you’ve updated. I will create a check-in list of URLs each month for easy blog surfing so fellow participants and readers can cheer you on. Why is it important to post each month even if you’ve made little progress? You’ll earn one chance, per status post, for a giveaway drawing to be done on New Year’s Day, 2013! I don’t want to discourage folks who may have issues that prevent them from posting for a month and force them to give up entirely on the SAL, but I also want to reward those who do check in every month. What will be in the drawing? Honestly, I’m not sure yet! That will be determined throughout 2012 as I add to the box during my trips to my local LNS. If you’d like to contribute to the box, email me (address below) and I’ll send you my address. Clean, unmarked charts (respect copyright – no photocopies!), finished items, new floss skeins, fabric, etc. are all welcome. If you have other ideas for a contribution, drop me an email to discuss. Edit on Aug 31, 2011 – I’ve received a few questions regarding the WIPocalypse, and have included them on a public FAQ page HERE. I’ll add to this page as needed. Please comment on this page only if you are joining the SAL. If you have questions or are having trouble with the comment form, please email me at Full moon dates for 2012: January 9 February 7 March 8 April 6 May 5 June 4 July 3 August 1 August 31 September 29 October 29 November 28 December 28
