year of yarn
where is the November project..I am waiting desperate;y to start it...:)
row 7 error
I started the piece this morning and after ripping two times several rows I found row 7 should read K6,p1,k2, p2(not p1), k2, p1, k6, p1, k2, p2 (not p1), k2, p1, k6....if someone finds this to be incorrect please tell me, but it seems to form the pattern accurately
Block a month
I am very excited to see the different block designs. This will be a fun project for me to start.
