I ask you, what is better than the smell of wet wool in the evening? OK, almost anything, but undaunted by the smell, and now the owner of very clean jeans, I spent last evening felting!

It’s the end of the trimester here at the school of the overworked teachers and that means that in addition to grading papers, averaging grades, and writing report cards, we have a flurry of completed knitting! Knit quick kids, before the class ends!!

  5. My fantasy knitting life

    I’ve only been knitting for, what, a couple of months? So I haven’t yet had the chance to build up much of a stash, or a backlog of unfinished projects. Despite earlier tendencies (eg greeting cards, sketch books, art supplies,
