Harmony

Progress has slowed a bit on the Logan River Wrap, but I did finish the 25th repeat last night. I’m using the last ball of yarn right now, and I’m not sure I will have enough for all 29 repeats and the upper border. I’ll probably put in a lifeline at the end of the [...]

Today’s post is brought to you by the letters E, L, and V

Las Vegas was… exhilarating! Mom usually travels to Las Vegas once a year for a trade show, and I always ask if I can tag along. I know that I probably never would get a chance to visit the so-called Sin City otherwise.
