January Pour Moi Knit A Long



We would like to announce our  January Knit a Long, Pour Moi by Lori Versaci. She has two versions of this awesome sweater so we will leave it up to you to choose between the two. 
Lori will be bouncing in and out of our shop and will chat with us in our Ravelry group during this KAL. We have ordered gorgeous colors in the Canopy Worsted by The Fiber Company for us to choose from, or we can use Madelinetosh Dk for the lighter gauge Pour Moi.  This will be one of Chelsea's hottest KAL's.  The store is already buzzing with anticipation.  Plus, we will all enjoy 20% off this KAL. 
Pattern not included. 

You really don't want to miss this one!
