Dreaming in Technicolor

The Doodler

Seven long months…it was Doodler (self-imposed) Jail.  I went over my knitting diary last night and I had forgotten about the RESTARTS of this…I actually had begun in October and then wasn’t happy with the knitting so there were two restarts in November.  And, then, there was the running out of yarn that happened twice […]
