I have to confess that it did require a wee bit of liquid courage to pull out the rotary cutter and start whacking through my fabric. After months of selecting, sorting, washing, starching, pressing, culling, revising, and just delighting in these lovely little bits of pink cloth, I finally had... Continue reading

Hi Cecilia - sorry to hear about your boyfriend's accident- it must be awful breaking both of your thumbs... I still have the mittens that I knit a few years ago, but have grown quite attached to them, so I would like to hold onto them - however they were very simple to knit and then they are felted in the dryer.
