Long ago, I found some bug had nibbled through a partially-finished project stashed away in a basket. I was one of those people who had baskets around my house so I could dramatically wander from room to room, gazing at the beautiful balls and skeins while dreamily running my fingers through the yarn.Read More
I love television and movies. Seriously, really passionate about it.* Also, it’s the perfect way to get a lot of knitting done on a regular basis.
