Over the last week since I checked in, I managed to finish my Kaylee socks… …the last square for the Geek-Along afghan… which is not quite the way it was supposed to be, because I was a doofus and didn’t pack enough of the different yarns to finish it correctly. But it is close enough… Continue reading Shiny!

I’m anticipating quiet nights in my hotel room, and am bringing 2 already started projects and the stuff to start my ADVENTure wrap when the 1st rolls around!
