Our 2019 Colorwork KAL will continue until May 15, 2019.  Come join the conversation on the Chatter Thread, and post your finished objects on the FOs thread.


We announce the winner of BostonJen’s new shawl pattern, Go with the Flow, at the end of this episode.


We are giving away a copy of the Frost Heaves Cowl by Bronwyn the Brave.  Comment on the thread to be entered to win.  The contest will end on April 20.  Bronwyn has also  set up a coupon code for $2 off the Frost Heaves pattern: THELONGWINTER, and says “It’s a nod to the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, not to mention this crazy winter we’ve had.”
