This KAL is for community building and fun. Even if you don't think you'll finish, join us for the positive support and motivation of knitting other Thistlers. In order to be prize eligible, sweaters must be started and finished within the KAL dates.
Sign up to participate in our Sweater KAL through the free sign-up form on this page.
To enter to win a prize, please submit a 2023 Sweater KAL FO (finished object) Form once your project is completed. You'll need to share your name, yarn choice, pattern choice, and either a link to your project on the web or your FB or Rav username so we can find where you've shared a photo of your FO.
If you've KALed with us before, you'll know this is a new prize drawing format. Previously we've asked you to post in our FB or Ravelry groups to be eligible. We do still hope you share progress and FOs in those places so we can all celebrate your makes! Our goal with the FO Form is to make prize drawing as straightforward and fair as possible, while keeping the incentive of finishing a project as one of the criteria. If you have any questions about how to submit an FO form, please let us know at email@example.com!

There is so much motivation. support, and inspiration among Thistlers in all of these platforms.
I started my yarn journey on the longest night of the year, back in December 2011, when I embarked on knitting Kate Davies' Owlet Sweater for my then 5 year old daughter.
I had learned to knit (and had knitted various garments) as a young girl in Scotland but had put the knitting down for several years. Upon picking up my new circular needles on that December night, and while following the well written and friendly pattern by Kate Davies, a new appreciation and enjoyment for knitting grew and quickly became a passionate pursuit. I am from Scotland and immigrated to the USA in 1992.
Through knitting and actively participating in the world-wide knitting community, I have been able to keep connections with Scotland in a way that wasn't possible before. The act of knitting as well as being a part of a community of Knitters has brought a lot of happiness to my day-to-day life and now provides me full-time employment importing British and European yarns for those of us here in the USA.
Now it is my wish and desire to bring that same joy and happiness into the lives of others as well. Come join the fun in our community! See you there!
