Winner will be chosen by random number generator on the first podcast in March. Instagram hashtag is #caffeinatedclapotis

The girls are also hosting a 12 socks in 2015 KAL. Each month, the girls and everyone who decides to join, will cast on a pair of socks on the first and bind off by the end of the month. Those who finish a pair of socks in each month will be eligible to win a sock pattern. Winners will be chosen among those who have posted their finished pair of socks by the end of the month by random number generator.

The girls also mentioned the KAL planned for March/April, featuring designs by Lisa Mutch of Northbound Knitting.
