Fall is long gone, but our annual Sweater KAL is ongoing until January 31!  All entries to our FOs thread will need to be an adult-size sweater with sleeves (short is okay!), cardigan or pullover.  Be sure to check out the Bundles of pattern suggestions.  You still have time!

The Chicks will be at Stitches West 2017  - February 23-26, 2017 at the 
Santa Clara Convention Center/Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, CA.  We will be having our regular meet-up in the Hyatt bar on Saturday afternoon - come see us!
