Oh No She Didn’t!

Often times, I visit websites and blogs and spend time admiring fellow knitters’ handiwork.  It gives me great motivation and inspiration to be surrounded by all this talent.  But I am me.  I am a work in progress and I have more ‘oops’ than I can count.

This page is dedicated to that me.  The distracted me.  The impulsive me.  The cosmic space cadet that I am and love.  So, if you find yourself lamenting a project gone awry, come sit and have a cup of coffee shot of bourbon with me as we compare our collective woes!

The body of the shawl is this lovely blue, and the lace edge will be the coral.  Definitely worth the trouble.
