Start Something New 2016 KAL

Start something new! There are two threads on Ravelry for this KAL – a chatter thread and an entry thread. You don’t have to finish the item, but you have to show the project in progress, at least. This can be knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, or any other fiber craft that you’ve wanted to try. You can post multiple entries, but only one entry per project, even if you’re doing multiple new things with that project.

This KAL will run from January 1st to March 31st and I will draw for the winner during my April episode.

If you’re posting to instagram, you can use #lemon2016KAL so we can all see your projects.

We have a KAL sponsor! RsislandCrafts is supplying 2 project bags as prizes for this KAL and have a coupon code of LEMON15 from now until the end of March for 15% total purchase – https://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/home/rsislandcrafts
