The third annual PlanetJune Reindeer Games crochet-along has just wrapped up, and it was a huge success! (The Reindeer Games is a relaxed end-of-year CAL where you can participate by crocheting projects from any PlanetJune patterns or any of my books.)
For 2023, I changed the way the CAL runs so it’s not limited to Ravelry any more. Over the 2 month CAL, we had 60 projects submitted through the PJ Ravelry group and an additional 50 projects from the PJ Discord group, making a total of 110 completed projects:
Aren’t they great? All the projects, together with the CAL statistics, are on display in the brand new Reindeer Games 2023 Gallery, including credits for all the participants and all the (virtual) medals they won for their achievements!
The next Reindeer Games will start on November 1, 2024, so look out for my announcement next October if you’d like to take part in the 2024 CAL (or sign up for my monthly newsletter now so I can send you a reminder!)
I’m really happy with this new more inclusive direction for the Reindeer Games, and I’m already planning more improvements for next year, including a submission form so you can submit your projects to the gallery even if you’re not part of our Rav/Discord groups. (Do let me know if you have any other suggestions – I’m always happy to make things better for all of us!)
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the 2023 Reindeer Games, and a huge thanks to all of you who make the PlanetJune community such a friendly, welcoming environment. It’s a pleasure to be a part of it and to get to know you all – and to see the beautiful creations you make from my patterns 🙂
