The KAL will begin January 1st 2017 and run until December 31st 2017. We will have quarterly entry threads in the ravelry group for your FOs and prizes to give away (more on those in a bit)! There is also a year long thread to keep track of all your gifts knits and there will be prizes for most gifts knit in 2017!
It’s not too late if you would like to sponsor a prize! Just drop us a line and we’d be happy to have you on board. All sponsors will be mentioned in each episode of 2017!
What’s coming in Q4.... Winter
Basic rules apply this quarter, 1. Must be a gift 2. Knit from stash predating 2017 gets you a second entry. Start updating the year-long thread, grand prizes will be drawn from that thread.

Karla - hard to tell C1 from C2 in the crosshatch shawl sometimes
Emily -. Started a braid Murkey Waters 80/20 merino mulberry silk by totally inked yarn. Will be a 2 ply.
Karla - Ponderosa Guild Spin in tomorrow and I don’t know what I’m spinning yet. I have a bag of different fibres I might just bring to play with but also thinking a two ply is something I have sitting in stash for a new hat.
