Loose Knit

I’m out of practice! I’ve been doing so much crocheting for the #125WeddingBlankets (fingers crossed we can actually have 125 guests at our wedding by June…. but that’s a whole ‘nother tangled ball of stress) that my fingers are out of knitting practice.

Surviving The Boyfriend Sweater Curse

The sweater is done! I’ve never made a dude a sweater before, so this is kinda huge. Really huge is the fact I finished and it fits just like he wanted it to. I admit that I procrastinated a little. I’m not typically superstitious, but this boyfriend sweater curse idea has been floating around on …
