Our Fall Sweater KAL is almost over - January 31st! To enter to win a prize, complete an adult sweater with sleeves - start a new one or continue with one less than 50% done, and post in the FOs thread. Winners will be announced on Episode 152.
New Giveaway! Win a 2 Knit Lit Chicks hooded sweatshirt, size L (unisex size, but it is a slim fit). Leave a comment on the Ravelry group thread telling us about the best sweatshirt you’ve ever had. This giveaway will close on January 31st also, and the winner will be announced on Episode 152.
Get ready for our next KAL – the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along which will run February 14 through May 15. Make socks like you’ve never made before - try a new heel, using a pattern if you usually stick with vanilla, knit from a sock blank for the first time, do color work - or maybe try socks for the very first time! Please go to the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along Chatter thread to join the fun.
