Brainstorming

 

-Might rip back my Rocky Coast Sleeves to make them 3/4 length
-I got a suggestion from a knitter in one of my classes that when the purl bumps in her socks bother her– she wears her socks inside out. Must try that!
-Since there’s not enough time to knit all of the things I’d like to make for gifts- I’ve downloaded the Etsy app for my phone to help my handmade gift shopping effort.

 

From the Armchair
