    This is a very cool concept! Can anyone join in the fun?

    When is the magic cut off date for points awarded?

    I love a fun challenge!

    • Hey Teira,
      we don’t have a magic cut off date, nor are there any prizes. We just wanted to challenge ourselves. We were hoping to have “guest” projects, feel free to email us ( knittersrumble AT gmail DOT com ) if you would like to submit a post.

      Thanks!
