KAL Talk!!

Our Lisa-A-Long ends on Wednesday August 31st. As long as the thread is open you can enter your projects. The thread will be locked that evening. Winners will be drawn on our next episode. There are now two prize packs.

Our next KAL will be a Hedgehog-A-Long! Any project new or previously started using at least 50g of Hedgehog Fibers yarn will be eligible. If it’s a wip, there should still be a decent portion of work to be done. If mixing HF yarn with other yarn, the HF yarn should be at least 50% of the project. This KAL will start September 1st and run until September 30th. There will be one hedgehog themed prize pack.

Aryn’s planned project - The Karen Double Layer Mittens

Tiffany’s planned project - in the works!
