2012: Year in Review

Tomorrow is the last day of 2012.  Last year on December 30, 2011 I wrote an entry about my crafting goals for 2012.  How did I do?  Let’s take a look. Learn to do cables.  Yup!  Learn to use a Turkish drop spindle.   I did! Learn to read a chart, a knitting chart, that is.  […]
