Pictures of the finished project forthcoming...

Finished knits

The birthday sweater:

Knitted squid pair - the second is for the new baby.

Asymmetrical cardigan courtesy of a free Ravelrey pattern. Buttons were a going-out-of-business special.

More to come... and hopefully some actual stories and updates as well.
