– Meetup at MDSW! It will be on Saturday at lunchtime, just not sure of exact time or place yet. We’ll post in our MDSW thread on the group when details are firmed up.
– TN Twister KAL with CaffeinatedKnitting! Starts April 17, using any Unwind Yarn Company yarn and any of the 3 TN Twister patterns (hat, cowl, socks). We are not actually hosting this one, but you can officially join in over on the CaffeinatedKnitting group on Rav. There will be drawings for prizes for those who finish objects during the KAL!
– Dana has started two databases, one for potential sample knitters and one to try to decide what to dye for SSK. You can find the signup for sample knitters here, and the SSK survey here. Both are completely confidential, and neither obligate you to either buy anything (in the case of the SSK survey) or commit to sample knitting (sample knitter database). Thanks so much for your help!!
– Thank you SO MUCH to FiberAddiction for sponsoring us!

    I would make the Hurricane Hat by Andrea Goutier out of the Sugar Skulls yarn. It is awesome and I happen to be a big lover of Sugar Skulls. My fingers are crossed
