Our team just loves working together and working to serve you! We all decided that we wanted to spend more time together, knitting and plotting. So we each nominated lots of projects, took a vote, and then Carolina offered up the Faye Summer Top! Melissa said "Bobbles, cables, AND lace!!!  Oh my!!!!" Madelyn loved the vintage look and, we were hooked! There is A LOT going on in this sweater and lots to learn. If you want to come along with us - here is the place to preorder the yarns we are using! Melissa and Cadence will be talking about our progress on our Facebook lives (Tuesday at 3:30 PM, Saturday at 10:00 AM ET) and there will be some planned virtual meet-ups. We are coming up on our Fuzzy Turns Seven celebration and so we are calling this the Fuzzy Goat Birthday Sweater! We're making up our Knit-a-long as we go along - we thought it would be just the 4 of us but are tickled to have others join us! In Fuzzy fashion, there won't be a hard and fast start date
