11 year old girl becomes the youngest knitting club member to finish a sweater!

Saga is originally from Finland but now living in Geneva area. She learned about our club only in April, but  now she already finished her first sweater, which as you can see here reflects the beautiful spring! In addition she has inspired both teachers and students in her school who now want to learn knitting and contribute to the Hope for the Babies project!

Could we win in the Novita lottery?

Since the sweater and hat sets made from Novita Nalle Kukkaketo yarn ( here the latest addition) are really of excellent quality, we approached Novita to ask for a donation. The answer we got was that our request will enter a lottery with many other requests. Such lotteries are held quarterly, so we need to be patient for a couple of more months to find out if we have won.
