New KALs for 2019! 
Yarnageddon Update: the store staff are going to go ‘Cold Sheep’ as of January 1st - All 4 of us are participating. Buying yarn for work doesn’t count! ;) Store samples don’t count. Sara is the first one to fall out of the competition.

WCW Knit & Crochet Bingo!

The bingo boards are available to download from our store website - the link is in the Ravelry group, or you can just search for ‘Bingo’ on the website. This seemed to be the best way to distribute the PDF file.

Challenge started January 1st, and will run until the end of the year. Rules and notes about the game squares are all in the Chatter Thread on Ravelry.

How are we progressing?

Glenda - Stranded colourwork (Whale Hat), Make a Sweater (Winston Sweater), and ‘leftovers’ square (Beauregard Pig)

Kelsey - using up leftover yarn. Does the free square count!?

Heather - Make a gift for someone (Luke’s socks), Crochet (dishcloth), Cables (CWM hat)
