FO: Wonky Cowl

Portrait in Queen Elizabeth ParkRecently, my husband’s mom came to visit and spend the week in Vancouver.

At this point, I’m just crossing my fingers that I will be able to finish this sweater before Christmas, nevermind finishing my twelfth sweater by the end of the year! Read the rest of this entry
