Ishbel

A Trip to the Frog Pond

Well unfortunately I had to frog Longshadows.  Somewhere I got the numbers off and next thing you know a hole.  I think too much time had past between knitting sessions.  Ugh!  Remember it here… Well it’s now back in ball state.  I think after I finish the Fountain Pen Shawl I’ll try it again.  I’m [&hellip…
