Hey y'all, this is Rachel here. I'd love to hear what techniques you've been wanting to try... Longing for lace? Two socks-at-a-time? Want to get better at finishing?

Also, what are the patterns you've been wanting to knit, but wanted a support group? We're thinking about creating a few structured knit-a-longs that will be more supportive than a regular KAL and less structured than a class.

Looking forward to knitting more with you!
