First glove...with pictures!

So this is my first glove. It’s a little rough around the edges and all through the middle as well. I didn’t bind it off. I just used a life line to tie it off.

TNNA and free pattern

So today is the last day of TNNA, I think, in Long Beach. I am hoping that as I was told, my first ever published pieces were going to be on display this weekend at the show in the Skacel booth.
