Happy Valentine’s Day!

Filed under: life in general — Marie @ 3:48 pm

Just posting quickly here to say I’m still making good progress on Lucky. I hope to have more to report tomorrow, when I plan to begin the raglan decreases. Last night I made it to my first Detroit SnB at Sweetwater’s and met Kirsti and Kelly. It was great to chat about the Olympics, yarn stores, and future projects so I hope to make this a regular thing!

Here’s some silliness that I couldn’t resist posting (found at Ms. Em’s):
