I can’t help feeling really frustrated at not having a pattern to share again this week, but I have a good excuse. I still do not have a replacement computer, which means my files that weren’t networked are lost until further notice. It’s a struggle […]

Retro Winter Wear | 70’s Fashion

Sweaters are my Achilles Heel. Big and bulky, preferably, but I like tight knits too, just so long as they fit properly. It all has to do with the fiber, that is why I love to crochet. One of these days I’ll actually sit down […]
