We have had a busy time of it the last couple days – work is busy, a bunch of chores suddenly had to be done, Christmas shopping to be done… you know how it is. You may very well be in the same boat! Anyway, I have not had anything like as much time to… Continue reading Busy Time!
It doesn’t look like much, but this represent around half a pattern repeat since the last time you saw this piece of knitting. And since a pattern repeat is 52 rows, that’s not too terrible!
