Q3 Kitty Picks

Our Q3 Sweater KAL was a great challenge for many of you. Whether you were racing against the clock to finish your sweater within 2 week or if you were putting your skills to the test by knitting your very first sweater, so many of you CRUSHED this KAL! We love hearing that KALs encourage you to push yourself and try new things – that’s what it’s all about. That being said, you all made this quarter’s Kitty Picks extremely difficult. Here are our picks:
