When last I wrote, I was heading off to Fairbanks Alaska on a work trip, and had thrown some yarn and tools in my bag in a rather cavalier fashion, figuring that somehow a credible project would work itself out. That did not go as planned. Here again is the yarn… It is bulky weight,… Continue reading Well, It Was an Experience
Most of this weekend was devoted to making a bit more progress on Glenesk And I actually got the second repeat done!
