we will be doing something a little bit different this time round in our ravelry group. there will now be different topics breaking the kal down so it's easier to keep up with everyone. instead of having one giant thread and boy do they get giant we will have a few smaller ones and 2 galleries with no chat. it's gonna be awesome! and hopefully a lot easier to stay up to date with all of you talented ladies & gents!

there are really no rules for this knit along. you can knit or crochet and you can pretty much make anything as long as it falls under sweater, cardigan, pullover or top (no tanks please). it can also be for an adult or a child. we basically just want to encourage you to knit! so make what suits your taste, style, body and budget :) it makes it so fun to see all the different patterns people choose, find new yarns to covet and just plain fill up your queue on ravlery. mine grows exponentially each kal we do.
