2 Knit Lit Chicks


Book Talk Begins at 48:23

There’s less than a week to get those sweaters finished!  Post FOs in our Sweater FOs thread to be entered to win one of our three prize packages.  The FOs thread will close at the end of the day on January 15, and we will draw winners at the end of Episode 84.


Our Next KAL – the Alana-Along!  You can knit any accessory or garment pattern by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting, starting February 1, 2015 and finishing by April 1 (we may extend the deadline if we have lots of people knitting sweaters).  You can knit multiple NNK designs, but we will be allowing only one entry per knitter for this KAL.  Start thinking about what you’d like to make, and gathering your materials!


Let us know if you have any interest in a Read-Along of Persuasion by Jane Austen.
