Finished Ice Time Hat and Cowl since I last spoke to you. I shared a peek on Instagram to solicit test knitters. Thank you for the overwhelming response! Thank you to Legacy Fiber Artz for the gorgeous yarn!

On the Needles

Brainstorming

  • Planning to knit another of the DK shawls I am knitting now for my BFF
  • Need to check gift bin to see if I have socks to gift.
