Yarn on the Go
We worked on our knitting while we played Dungeons and Dragons.
Diana went to her fiance’s work Christmas party, and discussed spinning and knitting. She also went to Grandma’s house to do some baking with the 3 and 5 year olds.
Jocelyn tried to make a hat out of some Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick, when the cable fell out of her circular needles.
Jocelyn is attempting to train the kitty not to be interested in spinning.
