2017 Q1 Finish-Along List

Yes, I’m going to try this again this year. Last year my best quarter for finishes was the first quarter – maybe because it is also my LQS’s UFO finishing contest also, so I’m extra motivated. So this year, I’m aiming high again for the first quarter. First of all, I am pretty sure I …

What Am I Getting Myself Into?

Apparently it’s feast or famine around here with the posts! Apparently (and apparently apparently is the word of the day here!) the Twitterverse is causing me to start an new project soon. Next Monday to be exact, as we sew-in on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I think it might be AJ’s (from I Knit …
