Many FOs and 1 WIP

As promised, I have pictures of many FOs. Some I’ve posted before in one form or another, but here they are finally complete – ends woven in, blocked and buttons sewn on.

Quick update from Ithaca

I’m in Ithaca for the week and blissfully knitting at the yarn shop. I hope I’m not annoying too much the people who have to work there! Everyone who works, frequents, and visits the shop is really friendly. I would have loved to have such a great knitting community to knit with [...]
