Finished, and not-so

You wouldn’t know it from looking at this blog, but there has been plenty of stitching going on in these parts since March. Where to begin? Hmm…in rather random fashion, then….. I started and finished this: It’s based on the YOLO shawl, but anyone who knows that pattern will recognize […]

A colorful challenge
