New to YOU Make-a-long!!!

Hello friends!!

I am SOOOOO EXCITED to announce this epic make-a-long that I am hosting to celebrate the New Year! 



I had the idea to create a make-a-long that would inspire you to do something new. A new craft, a new technique, a new pattern that you've been wanting to try, something that would get you out of your comfort zone. I think it's so important to learn new things as we get older. When I began knitting I always chose a project that would introduce me to a new technique. I wanted to learn something every time I made something new. After 10 years of knitting, I find myself NOT doing this! I have found a comfort level and have avoided some projects that have a technique that I am not familiar with and I wanted to change that.

I also love to bring people together. The maker community is so strong and supportive so why not include all of you and some of my favorite podcasters and makers??? I reached out to a few of my maker friends and we are so excited to host this make-a-long. 

Hosts and links to their spaces on the web:
Just One N Podcast (Liz Zimmerman)
