WIP Wednesday: May 21, 2014

In last week’s post, I told you I wasn’t sure what to bring with me as travel knitting while attending my sister’s graduation in Baltimore.  I broke my general rules of travel knitting, and brought 6 skeins of yarn for 3 different projects.  It’s a good thing, as I ended up having a lot more […]

First Ever Granny Square

I’ve known how to knit for more than 20 years, but I only learned to crochet last year.  I tried to teach myself crochet at the same time I taught myself to knit, but never quite got it right.  So last year, my friend Stacy taught me how to crochet.  In that year, I’ve crocheted […]
