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! 

Knit Companion for Android is at last a thing!
