Question from seine1, “You often talk about “bases” when you are describing yarns or rovings. Can you tell us more about what that means exactly?”
Book Review: Knit Wear Love by Amy Herzog ($24.95)
What we are reading:
Leslie finished In Her Name: Empire by Michael Hicks(sci-fi), free on Amazon and loved it. She is now listening to the Princepts Fury (5th in the series) audiobook. She also watched Outlander this week (first season) and couldn’t decipher half of what they were saying without subtitles.
