Beginners are certainly welcome […]Read More Knitting Over Lunch at Work
Stitch Mountain: 30 Warm Knits for Conquering the Cold by by Laura Zander is a cool book. I got it in one of the fun bookstores in the Outer Banks, NC, USA a few years ago. I saw the Snowflake Turtleneck pattern in there and knit it, and TOTALLY messed it up. I think I […]Read More Snowflake Turtleneck: Take 2
