Knitting for comfort

I have written the intro to this post in my head half a dozen times, and none of those versions have been quite right. So. The reason I have been quiet on here for the last month is due to various complicated and difficult family health circumstances, of which the most abrupt and shocking was…

Where are they now?

Time to do a catch-up on some of those unresolved items from yesteryear. 1. This post would be a good place to start. See the lovely just-started Liesel in the lovely lofty Rowan Cork?
