Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 15

This week I've been focusing on a non-YOP piece (my Saligna sweater test knit) but did manage to get two of my YOP's worked on. My DH also has found work travel has kicked back into high gear for him. He's home this upcoming week but then gone for almost 2, including the weekend, so… Continue reading Year of Projects 2021-2022: Week 15
