Shhhh…don’t tell anyone!Also, Hal, my DH, has been dealing… Continue reading Projects!
Here are some socks I’ve been working on for my husband. He has short, but very wide feet, so I always end up making his socks a little longer than one might think they should be… Next up…Some gorgeous BFL from Woolgatherings, with my new drop spindle from Spindler’s Cottage.
