As I mentioned in an earlier post, I signed up for Kate Davies latest pattern club, which somehow or the other incorporates bullet journaling.

My Find Your Fade shawl came to work with me for some sneaky lunchtime knitting, but issues kept coming up, and I never got to touch it. This evening was filled with grocery… Continue reading A Day with No Knitting
