WIP Wednesday – On My Needles

Right now I have a couple of fun things on my needles.  First is my Love of Spiders shawl, which is from a pattern by Melanie Berg, using custom dyed Sunshine Yarns Luxury Sock … all in fun kits from Little Skein in the Big Wool. I am absolutely obsessed with this shawl and how deceptively […]
