I've definitely been feeling those words on my shirt recently - these are indeed hard times for soft-hearted folks like me. But at least I have my knitting to keep me feeling a bit more centered. I've now almost finished the body of my Farmhouse cardigan, and have used exactly 2 full skeins of the… Continue reading Making progress
You can donate to Ravelry here Ravelry made a really big move this weekend, and I worry they’re going to get a lot of pushback.
