Knit addicted, I could quit any time…

I am the hand that holds The Patchwork Quill. And I ... have a knitting problem. I spent two glorious Saturdays (last Saturday and Saturday 23 August) learning to knit, courtesy of the wonderful Emma Whiteside of Top Floor Art and now I am well and truly hooked. (If it'd been crochet, that would have been… Continue reading Knit addicted, I could quit any time…
