We are joining up with our good friends at Cocoknits in their first ever knit-a-long! Soon we will cast on an Emma A or B sweater from the Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book. This is an excellent intro to the Cocoknits Method or wonderful refresher for those of you who have participated in our past Cocoknits classes. If you've already tried the Cocoknits Method and want something a little more challenging, feel free to add cables, stitch patterns, colorwork, whatever you need to make it a fun knit for you....no matter how much you customize, if you started from the base of an Emma Version A or B, we're happy to have you in our KAL. Plus, we'd love you to share your tips, tricks, and modifications with the rest of the group! Be sure to register for the KAL with both Cattywampus to get your participant discount (10% off all required materials) and with Cocoknits to get the emails with all the tips and tricks. Every week or two Cocoknits will send you an email letting you know the next steps, tips and tricks with your sweater, and answer popular customer questions. Our official Cocoknits KAL meetups are on Friday afternoons 3-5 pm, but you are welcome to knit and gather whenever it works for you. If you're late to the knit-a-long and didn't receive an email in time, it's all good! Cocoknits will add them to their KAL page, after the email has been sent, so you can catch up
