Ha ha ha, ho ho ho and a couple of la di da's, that's how you knit the day away in the merry old land of OZ Chez Tenten!! You hear it all the time when it comes to knitting projects, "Make sure you buy more than enough yarn!" and most of the time I … Continue reading A skein of a different color
I love to blog, knit and design but a lot of the time things I design/knit cannot be discussed openly on the blog. Which makes for a very quiet blog and not too fun for anyone involved.
