A couple of years ago I made some Christmas sweaters (sweaters that I give as gifts at Christmas time, not the awful "ugly sweaters" that it is popular to wear to Christmas parties) for the grandsons. I used the pattern from this book: They were made from a lovely heather-blue washable yarn with an… Continue reading Workbasket – Christmas Knitting has begun
Sigh. In my knitting group they often use a term... "doing a Lorri". What does this mean? It means to frog the whole knitting project and start over.
