I finished the Reyna shawl and am now busy with the wrap pattern called “Moonlight” by Pat Strong.

Catching Up, Finished Objects, and Christmas Crafting Begins!

In which time runs away from me, I start a new job, finish a few projects, and start some Christmas projects (can you believe it’s already that time of the year!). I’ve had no excuses for not keeping up with the blog other than not having enough time… In September I started a new job… Continue reading Catching Up, Finished Objects, and Christmas Crafting Begins!
