       WALK & KNIT RELAY    

    Saturday, September 10  4pm

    Join a team and extend your fun at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival

    ***Team registration closed 8/15**

    There is still time to volunteer

    Contact Jane Grogan:janegro@yahoo.com

    Sign up to get a spot on an official MKG team.  Cost is only $5 (members and non-members, no paypal surcharge)  You can find three friends and create your own team, or get a random assignment to a team.

    Each team member will walk one lap (approximately 100 yards) while knitting in stockinette stitch on circular needles.

    Team points are awarded based on the number of stitches knit and on the  time to walk the course and then points will be deducted for errors (dropped stitches, etc). 

    You do not need to be either a fast walker or fast knitter to participate.  You do need to like to have fun!

    Besides being a source of great fun and laughter, this event raises money to fund wool activities at the Festival for kids. 

    If you like to have fun but don't want to do the walking & knitting, contact Jane Grogan (janegro@yahoo.com).  There are many "behind the scenes" opportunities.

    Mark your calendar and plan to come watch the event.  Don't miss out on this fun!
