  1. WIP Wednesday - Festoon Socks

    The luxury of time has made me revisit some old WIPs (work in progress), that have sadly been left forgotten. For no reason whatsoever the lure of a new project has left these poor things unloved. So with this series I am starting a WIP Wednesday and I'm encouraging everybody to shine a light on some old projects, hopefully turning...

Woollen does not necessarily mean something that is wooly and worsted is not just a yarn weight found commonly in America. What I'm talking about here is the way the yarn is spun. Woollen and worsted...
