Our Mother Bear KAL/CAL is ongoing!  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.

Thank you to new prize donors:  DCAlaneKnitsredsknitsBostonJentmkr, and dptemple.

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!  Soon we will start a chatter thread, and create a Ravelry Bundle of patters.
