Today I'm fighting a lot of anger. Problem is there isn't anybody to direct it at except myself. I have invested over $50 and lots of hours first reading about and then knitting on this sweater. I picked out the yarn because it was supposed t... Read more

My summer weaving project (two dish towels) is OFF THE LOOM. I still have to hem them and wash them, of course. I'm proud of them. Proud also that I had followed my diagram and all the corresponding stripes are the same size. Here they are: ... Read more
