QUESTIONS FOR YOU:

  1. Would you be interested in a Sock Pattern Club? Or would you just prefer for a collection to be released all at once? Both options would come with a corresponding knit along.
  2. How about a Year Long knit along for my designs? I would draw for prizes periodically every 1-2 months.
