From November 21st, 2023 at 5:00 pm US Eastern time zone to December 31, 2023 at midnight US Eastern time zone there will be fun games, contests, and 8 KAL/CALs that will help you get your holiday knitting and crocheting done with companionship and fun!

Once you’ve got your Gift-A-Long patterns, we encourage you to join a relevant KAL/CAL! (For instance, if it is a cowl, please join the Cowls, Scarves, & Other Neck Things KAL/CAL). To join, simply write a post in the KAL/CAL thread you want to join, including the pattern name you will be knitting and a link to your project page. KAL/CAL participants are eligible for lots of lovely prizes but you’ve got to post to win. PLEASE NOTE: you MUST be a group member to be eligible to win any prizes.

KAL/CALs will run from November 21st 2023 at 5:00 pm US Eastern time zone to December 31st, 2023 at midnight US Eastern time zone, plenty of time to knock out all your holiday knitting and crocheting. We have tons of prizes, games, and great conversation, plus a lot of other fun, so pull up a chair and join us!

I’ll be starting off with something small and not too hot, like these beautiful socks designed by Kelly G.
