What do you think of our choices? If you’d like to participate in a Knit-A-Long for any of them this fall/winter, leave a comment, and we’ll add you to the interest list. As soon as we get a few eager beavers for any sweater, we’ll put it on the calendar.

Happy Sweater Knitting!

    1. Becky – I’ll put your name on the interest list for Koto. If we get 4 or 5 people interested in making it, we’ll add it to the schedule. It would be an in-store Knit-a-Long, but we could possibly do a virtual Knit-a-Long at the same time. I’ll keep you posted 🙂
