Knitterly Updates #1: Finished Facecloth

Due to exams I haven't knitted as much as I would have, just picking up yarn and petting it and swatching with it occasionally. I had a small face cloth project to keep me going, though - Facecloths are my new favourite portable knitting project!    I didn't think it was possible, but I think I… Continue reading Knitterly Updates #1: Finished Facecloth
