I wanted to name this post “Steeking is Fun”

(Edited to Add: Grandma wants to say Hello to her neighbor Dorothy!) But I thought that might scare away some people!

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

The dog sweater? It is done, steeks and all! I finished it last Friday. Pictures coming soon!

Aberration

I’ve been struggling with a lack of focus. I can’t concentrate on my current projects. I desperately want to cast on something new, or even worse, buy new yarn.
