For some reason, documentation of knitting projects is suddenly a thing. Or possibly it has always been a thing, and I just didn’t notice. Whichever, how you plan your knitting and document your projects while they are in progress and after they are done is currently a big deal. Ravelry is, of course, one of… Continue reading Document, Document, Document
Dolores’ caftan is progressing nicely, but still not quite presentable. Hopefully will be there a bit later this week! The other thing I started working on last week was my Find Your Fade shawl.
