The Monthly Adventures group doesn't just do swaps. They also do KALs/CALs and are around for general support (knitting and otherwise). We have had an ongoing Lose the U Monthly KAL, where you post your UFOs, and try to finish them by the end of the month. We give each other encouragement, and at the end of the month there is a prize!
I won the prize for October--for finishing Hanami. This is a random prize, so everyone who participates and finishes something that month can win.
And what a great package it was:
A great little DellaQ project bag, a handy knitters emergency kit (with handy measuring tape), with the worlds cutest crochet hook, tea , teacup, chocolate, toe up sock pattern, stitch markers, sheepy key chain (on my car key already), hand lotion, lavender sachet, eucalan samples–pheww I thinks that’s everything.
I think the crochet hook is super cute!
J is already putting the cup to good use--can you smell the cappuccino?
