Finish Friday: Make Believe Socks

Phoncible Hat Progress

phoncible5.jpg

As it turns out, I was able to show some self restraint with my Phoncible Hat, it’s not finished yet! It’s so weird to have to stop myself from finishing something rather than pushing to get it done, but I’m glad I left this one alone. I want to work ...

Let it Snow!

We got snow this morning in the Netherlands. So close to Christmas, but it just missed the mark.  I think not having snow is one of the things that makes it more difficult to get into the Christmas spirit over here.  Well, that together with not having friends and family ...
