I have had a dream for many many years, which is to live in a cottage in Ireland, next to the water, where I could live quietly and working on my art.
Over the holidays I purchased several skeins of Elsebeth Lavold's Angora "smoke" at a greatly reduced price.
I just posted a new post about a scarf pattern called the Asherton Scarf, that I just loved knitting. I want to do more of these!
