Quarterly Knit Challenge

The word is “Loopy”-EXTENDED until July 30th!

Each quarter we will be hosting a knitting challenge. A topic will be selected and it will be up to the guild member to interpret that topic into a finished item. The only requirement is that the item be knitted. What the knitter uses as a medium and subject is up to them. 
At the end of the challenge all the items will be displayed and a draw will be made. So put you’re thinking caps on and get creative.

The current “Quarterly Knit Challenge” runs from April 1st 2021 to June 30th, July 30th 2021 And the drawing for prizes will take place in our August meeting. Good Luck!! We eagerly await the results.
