I greet all of the long-Krakow. People say that it will be cold winter
Not sure where I am going yet with this sweater. The wool is a rustic tweed from the Queensland Collection.63% wool, 27% alpaca & 10% donegal. I'll keep the topic going and see what turns it takes.
Well some time ago I started my very first sock, I felt good knowing I was going to be learning something new. During that project, as well as others following it, I was told I was…well let’s just drop that. So Sock 1; Take 1 was frogged and a new one was started.
For those of you who got the pattern for being an attendee of the retreat, I will be happy to gift you a copy through ravelry so you may have it in your library and have a digital version of it.

So, when I was back in Seattle, I was talking to a very nice guy in a yarn shop about various things, and somewhere mentioned that I wanted to try my first sweater but was trying to get up my courage. He told me "if you've done socks, you already know most of the techniques."
Well maybe, but construction is full of surprises!
