Narf! Shawl

Narf! Pinky is one of my all time favorite cartoon characters.

So I have named my shawl made with… Read more »

Palom-a-gogo: Project Go!

I haven’t knitted a sweater all year and I’m feeling a serious itch. I’m in need of a nice, soft, squooshy covering that has enough going on that I won’t get bored knitting it, but not so much that it will take over my life. The majority of my knits so far this year have… Read more »
