Yarn on the Go
Christmas happened. A lot of it. And there was much knitting.
Diana dropped an edge stitch on her Eh! pillow and ended up ripping out the whole thing.
Jocelyn did some spinning on Diana’s Electric Eel Wheel 5 from Dreaming Robots with the help of Miss D from craft club.
Sew Little Time
Jocelyn worked through some mending.
We make some yarn resolutions.
