I have finished my two garments that were previously in WIP status! First, my red sweater is done! And it is way to big for me. Boo! I did a swatch and everything! I guess I didn’t calculate something correctly. It seems whenever I do a Lion Brand Yarn pattern, it turns out too big, […]Read More The two big ones? DONE.

It needs to dry for a while, but it should be ready by Wednesday. I am going to be rocking my […]Read More Long Lean Sweater: Week 7 Almost there!
