Meet The Boys (Part 2)

So you’ve seen “Wilson” and “Roman”, would you like to see the rest? “Fraser” This is named for my brother. It uses a shifting rib pattern to create subtle chevrons while the sleeves are a plain rib which gives a slim looking sweater.

Pause for Breath

Yesterday I helped move my mother-in-law into her new home. As you can imagine, it was a long day but it flew by and we achieved an awful lot. I returned to my home yesterday evening after almost 3 weeks away, exhausted. Thanks to my amazing husband who plied me with beer and pizza and […]
