Knitting a lot and then knitting some more

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!

So, when I came across this Jack Skellington baby beanie, I knew the perfect person to make it for… The beanie turned out better than I thought it would, and the… Continue reading Jack Skellington and Crocheting for Babies
