KALS

BOX O' SOX KAL

Duration: January 1, 2017 — January 1, 2018

HALF MOON ORACLE KAL
About: I'm celebrating the release of my latest pattern with a 2 month KAL! To join, all you need to do is purchase / knit the Half Moon Oracle shawl, join the Yarngasm Ravelry group, and post in the Half Moon Oracle KAL thread. 
Duration: November 1   — January 1 2018

YEAR OF THE GARMENT KAL
About: I plan to knit at least 4 garments in 2018! So I've decided to host a very casual KAL for anyone who would like to join me. There aren't any strict guidelines. Simply knit as many or as few garments as you like. Chat, ask questions and post pix to the chatter thread in the Yarngasm Ravelry group.
