So, without further ado..... here are some modeled shots!

hi, Wow I love your work. I just started knitting about a year ago and I have no where near perfected it. Im working on a blanket right now and it's gonna take me a long time.

I enjoyed looking over some of your work and I hope you have a wonderful week.
