A new incarnation

Perhaps it seemed that I would never get back to producing any knitting content. Progress has certainly been less than stellar, but nevertheless progress has been made. The pink wool is being reincarnated into a new iteration of an old favourite and I feel renewed confidence in it. In fact, I don't know why it…
