In my attempt to work through my stash I came across some left-over alpaca yarn that I made a wrap out of, a few years back. I figured I’d make a nice cowl out of it, for the days when it’s too warm for a wrap yet too cold for nothing at all. Which is […]
I love this divine shape. It’s the only thing I remember how to draw from geometry class. It’s nice equal sides and it’s pretty 60 degree angles. Yeah, I love this shape. So I really wanted to knit it because deep down I hate knitting and I figured it would be better if I could […]
