Single sock submitted for publication, hat submitted for publication. Knit an entire cowl for self-publication and then realized I couldn’t support the dyer’s politics, so I’m starting over.

KALs

Lots of Socks KAL – hosted in the Paper Daisy Creations Ravelry Group. Will feature lots of colorful socks on sale in February with proceeds going to Down Syndrome research. KAL through March 21 with prizes.

Refund KAL – finish a Kino Knits pattern between January 1 and April 15, 2019, and lucky winners will have their purchase price refunded. If you didn’t buy it, or if you prefer, you can claim a different Kino Knits pattern as a prize or choose to gift it to a friend.

The Woolly Thistle colorwork mitten KAL runs February 22 – April 5, 2019. Mittens from my Safari Mittens Collection would be perfect!
