Our Mother Bear KAL/CAL has started! 

The Mother Bear FO thread is open and awaiting your FO pictures.  Please post a separate picture for each bear.  Let's see if we can beat last year's total of 313 bears!

We can always use more prizes!  If you have anything you want to donate, please contact us at 2knitlitchicks@gmail.com.

Many thanks to
Halcyon37 – Ravelry pattern of the winner’s choice

Start thinking about sweaters!

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!
