Current stitches, future stitches

A back, a front, one sleeve, and two swatches I haven't worked anything like the amount on my Heather Sweater that I had intended which just goes to prove that, no matter how much you tell yourself you're going to knit, it only works if you stop playing digital jigsaws on your computer and start… Continue reading Current stitches, future stitches
