2007 Sweaters in Review

I’m pretty sure I am not going to finish another sweater before the end of the year and as I am going to be out of town and in fact in another country, I am working the publish-later trick. Tricksy, that’s me! You’d never guess it, but I managed to finish 12 sweaters this year. […]
