It Must Be Fall

I know it’s not officially fall yet but I started to smell it last week. I know it was 88°F earlier this week but it didn’t stop me from noticing the leaves turning yellow. I know it’s still August but my mind has already switched to fall. Startitis is trying to strike, and hard. I’m […]

Knitting a sweater in laceweight yarn – even a heavy laceweight like the malabrigo lace I’m using – on US5 needles is taking a long […]
