Finishing Mania

Wrap it Up! – Since it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, it seems only fitting that I’ve got a bunch of finished projects. Pics below the cut! Advertisements


On The Needles –  Seems I’ve only got super secret projects on the needles right now. Oops Super Secret Project 1 – very little progress on this one. Still only 5/37 skeins used. Super Secret Project 2 – small amount of progress on this one, but not very measurable Super Secret Project 3 –  This…

Quick update
