A blast of joy: another KAL in partnership with Tricoteiras.com!

A few months ago, Valesca  and Clara, friends and owners of Tricoteiras.com have arranged a KAL for the TIC cowl. It was like an experience from another planet: so much fun! Most of us follow the website and participate at an online community for knitters called Crazy Knitting Ladies. We are in contact almost every day and during this period we share knitting experiences that goes from the choice of yarn to a ideal cast off a project!
