Just a few more days to participate in our Mother Bear KAL/CAL! You have until August 31st to post a picture of any bear you have knit or crocheted in 2016 in our FO thread. Lots of prizes, but your best reward is knowing you have given a child comfort.
Many thanks to our latest donor:
Kathleen (SweeTart77) has donated a project bag from her shop MakeThisFromThat.
Our annual fall Sweater KAL will run from October 1 to January 31. All entries to our FOs thread will need to be an adult-size sweater with sleeves (short is okay!), cardigan or pullover. Challenge yourself!
