Posting Projects on Ravelry

Posting your projects to Ravelry does more than just track your progress.  It helps other knitters to see how yarn looks once knitted and how different a pattern can look in different yarn.  It helps the designer get more exposure for their patterns.  And it helps your friends remember the name of the patterns they too want to make!  Be sure to share your projects with the HOKC group!  
Want free yarn?  This year, for every project you add to Ravelry and share with HOKC's Ravelry Group, we will add your name to a monthly drawing!  You do not need to be present to win -- we will announce winners on our Ravelry Group each month.

Click here for more information on how to post a project.
Stop in today for your 2018 Challenge Booklet!
