Question from Patroth, “I am currently knitting on yarn that I love how it feels and looks but I hate knitting it. It’s silk and cashmere (cry me a river right?) but I don’t do lace and it’s super slippery. I have cast on at least four different projects and then frogged them. The current project is turning out fine, is a long tall cowl, but there is another skein! I need to use it because it’s way out of my price point but man I’m just not sure what to do with the yarn.”
Laura has read Squashed by Joan Bauer. She is currently reading the sequel to Jackaby, Beastly Bones by William Ritter
