I dated a guy in hs for a long time. We went to his prom and everything. One day he just vanished.

I'm the same way- picky about my knitting needles but am perfectly happy with my Boyes.

I like podcasts that are relaxing. My favorites are Knitpicks and Knitcast.

It's really pretty! I made that pattern too. Love that book!
This is such a nice pattern because it's so easy and quick. It's perfect for Christmas gifts and looks a lot more complicated than it is.
