Just a shout out that I am still looking for test knitters for my 2 new patterns soon to be published. If you may be interested please check out the thread in my Ravelry group.

Friendly reminder that my Senior Love Along continues on this year. I am collecting cotton wash clothes to hand out to seniors living in homes during the holiday season. Please hold on to your washcloths until later in the year. There is an FO thread where you can post a picture of each of your washcloths. Each one you make is a chance to win a prize! I will be announcing prizes that I will provide very shortly and unashamedly ask for any prize donations. They would be very welcome and much appreciated!
