My #KalevalaCAL progress

So, I think I've reached maybe a 1/4th of the Kalevala blanket. I consider that a success 😀 I'm not usually the person with big projects, I prefer smaller ones that I can complete faster. They say there are two types of crafters - or crocheters, in this case - one that really enjoys the… Continue reading My #KalevalaCAL progress

I worked with a wonderful yarn called Scarlett, which I purchased at a local yarn shop with a very fitting name - Village Yarn Shop. The yarn is 100% cotton, made in… Continue reading Inspired by Adirondack Rivers
