TNNA recap

  I intended to write about TNNA a few days after getting home. Instead I have been so exhausted I’ve been taking naps every day and still haven’t done half the things I was going to. This is what happens when I’m sick for six weeks with two viruses and then just start to recover …

My Sheep Tattoo

Two new cowl patterns!

It’s cold and dreary here, the kind of weather that makes you want to wrap yourself in wool. Lucky for you, we have two new cowl patterns! Angelia Robinson‘s Jasper Cowl is our first crochet pattern! This cowl is designed using controlled pooling. Angelia shows you how to work with hand dyed yarn to plan …
