This week’s pattern is a scarf, partially because I can’t find my hat(?) and also haven’t knit the smaller (kid-size) version of the hat yet.
Daily Desk, 02/02/21.
remain terrible at blogging/this whole thing working on some shawls also hats also some others things plus kids’ clothing so I feel deeply unproductive, but 2/4 yarns in the photo have been knit up, and projects have been started with the others.
