I knit the heel flap this week. That’s the good news. I sucked it up, knew I didn’t need to take copious amounts of notes in Psychology class, and knit my afternoon away after re-reading Oedipus. 468 more words


So Many Projects, Still Starting More!

Hello! First blog post on this blog! I’m excited! I have another blog but this one is going to be knitting specific.
