We have three challenges sponsored by Kathryn Doubrley.

From Kathryn Doubrley:
#1 My 2020 challenge to knitters is to knit 100 hats along with me to contribute to the “Keep Maine Warm” campaign. As my Grandma use to say, “good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise,” I will be knitting and sending 100, also. So if you get bored, aggravated and lonely while you work, remember you aren’t really alone. Several of us around the world are knitting maniacally too. Those who do send 100 hats to Linda for the charity will receive one of my books for free plus gratitude and respect from many sources.
Kathryn - http://www.theanswerlady.com
Participants who sent in 100 hats for the challenge are:
1. Margaret Hoyle
2. Lynn Acquard
3. Linda Hebert
4. Nancy Dionne
5. Connie Steen
6. JoAnn Smith
7. Rita McElroy

#2 For Hand Loomers - The person who enters the hat selected by the judges as the best loom knitted entry will receive a $20 gift certificate for use in The Answer Lady's Ravelry store. Remember to identify your hat (s) as loom knitted to qualify.
Winner is Mandy Ledger

#3 for all participants: I will email you a free copy of the Country Knitting of Maine News and Views 10 year anniversary e-book if you include your email address with your entry and make a note that you'd like to have it. This requirement is to avoid spamming those who either have it already or don't use e-books.
