Baby Knitting

I have been a bit slow getting this post done, but I am happy to report that I got the baby knitting finished just in time. I also remembered to take photos of my “pink knitting” before I sent it. As I said in my post “The End of the Tail”, I was really excited… Continue reading Baby Knitting
