Last week clue #1 for the Rising Spades KAL / Sweater class hit the in box of 200 knitters. We’ve only just begun and there are new knitters joining us everyday!
Monday our first, of many, participation prizes will get awarded and of course, there are the grand prizes in December (and yes, one of them will be for a UFO!)
