Part of me is delighted, because last year I knitted AWESOME jerseys but the rest of me is unimpressed because I like summer and very much dislike winter. (And it's coming!) Yesterday I wore my big purple knitted jacket, it was cold enough. Today, I'm working from home so an old hoodie will do the … Continue reading Almost jersey weather!
