Big Blanket

Well, it’s been quite a while since I last blogged; mostly due to the fact that it’s summer time and I rarely bring out the yarn in the summer. As I was sitting around today spending some quality time with Netflix, as I do (it’s Saturday…), I realized I have so many projects tucked away … Continue reading Big Blanket

I scored some great twine at my local Home Depot and couldn’t wait to make a nesting basket. There are many patterns floating around the internet, … Continue reading Nesting Basket
