My Weeks In Stitches – A Finish!

Hooray, I finished the Easter sweater!  I'm really happy with it - it fits, it feels so soft, and it got lots of compliments at church LOL.

My Week In Stitches

Progress pics!  And kids growing up too fast!Let's start with this year's Seahawks socks (I dubbed them Volume 12, referring to the loud fanbase in Seattle - the cabled side gusset reminded me of the 12 hawk wings on the uniforms).  The original pattern, which the designer called Maeva, can be found here.  Holy Cables,… Continue reading My Week In Stitches

My Week In Stitches

I'd like to say a huge thank you for the sweet comments on my previous post.  It's not easy to open up about my personal life to "strangers" (and yes, I'm realizing how often I use "quotes" in my posts).  It's safer to just talk about what's in my hands than reality and pain and… Continue reading My Week In Stitches
