A KAL, Challenge, and Prize Drawing
Hope this is okay to post here (a double posting), as I don't want to miss out on anyone hearing about this -- please do delete, our lovely mods, if not!

I'm announcing my blog's first KAL and challenge, to benefit Knit A Square, which supports children made orphans by AIDS in southern Africa. We've got three lovely and generous designers (Lucy Neatby, Kristeen Griffin-Grimes, and Diana Troldahl) lined up to design 8" squares for stitchers to use if they like, and there'll be a drawing at the end of the KAL.

More details available on the blog here and here.

It'd be lovely to have a few of you generous and wonderful Knitting Help stitchers along for the ride! Hope to see you on the blog!

Oh neat, I will definitely check it out!

Normally we don't like double posts, but in this type of case it's fine and lets knitters know about the project.

Thanks, Jan, and, we'd love to have you! (If only so I don't have to do 20 squares myself! )

The first designer squares (one knit, one crochet) are now up on the blog -- they're gorgeous, and I hope you'll join us with a square or five!
