FO: Nelosys

First, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who left a comment about Rippy.  My family was very touched; many comments brought tears to their eyes.  My brother was glad to see that so many other people had had cats live so long and that became […]

NELOSYS: The start of a new obsession?

I always have left over sock yarn after knitting a pair of socks. My feet aren’t huge, and I don’t like socks legs longer than 7-8 inches tops. Therefore, I usually end up with 25-40 grams of sock yarn left over when the socks are […]
