Biding my time

I've taken a bit of a break from videos. Some see the month of May as being the final push for the retiring products. Something I don't disagree with.

Shawl Knitting Patterns and Craft Room Design

Yay! I finished my latest knitting project! It was quite a booger, but I managed to figure it out. Although the amount of piles of yarn in my corner caused by ripping out rows of knitting was frightening. I took my notebook of scribbles,rewrites, and drawn frowning faces. Then I measuring, weighed, and typed and I… Continue reading Shawl Knitting Patterns and Craft Room Design
