Commuter Knitter - Episode 81 - That's My Story And I'm Sticking To It!

This week I have a little bit of knitting, a lot of planning, a new yarn to share with you, and I get a bit personal.  Enjoy!




Drive

DNF - Basic Fingerless Mitts - too warm at the game to wear them any way.  Stay tuned for cooler temperatures

Worked on Ginny's Cardigan button band.

Test knit - more to come when the pattern is released

Elfe - #sknitalong14 with Kristi and Sarah from In a Sknit

Finish-Along until the end of 2014 - #ckfal2014
