Simple Crocheting by Erika Knight

Going through a week’s worth of mail when we returned from our extended stay in Burlington was such fun for me – it was like Christmas morning!

Over-booked

I have three crochet projects going at the moment, and if I know me (and I think, by now, I do) this does not bode well for at least one of the projects. There’s the Granny Square Sampler, which I do really love and am committed to finishing. There’s a companion for Harold, which currently has one […]
