Topic of the Day: Rehashed shows.

- Started some “purse” projects -- stuff I can carry around that’s small. In this case, I started working on my neice & nephew’s fingerless gloves for the holidays -- it’s what they asked for earlier this year
- She was attacked by MOTHRA!!
- Socks with a welt pattern with short-row heels. Lion Magic Stripes, easy peasy.;
- Using Socks A La Carte for inspiration. (ISBN-13: 978-1600611858, by the SWTC Design Team)
- Nov. NaKniSweMo! I’ve got a hibernated hoodie that will be perfect: Apres Surf Hoodie
