Our Fall Sweater KAL is over!  Winners will be announced at the end of the podcast.

The 2 Knit Lit Chicks Hoodie giveaway is over also - the winner will be announced at the end of the podcast.

Get ready for our next KAL – the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along which will run February 14 through May 15.  Make socks like you’ve never made before - try a new heel, using a pattern if you usually stick with vanilla, knit from a sock blank for the first time, do color work - or maybe try socks for the very first time!  Please go to the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along Chatter thread to join the fun.  

Tracie and Barb will be at:
Stitches West - February 22-25, 2018
NoCKRs 2018 - April 12-15
