It’s been a while

I’ve been without my laptop as it was on loan to a friend.

At this very moment, it’s mostly seamed. Though I’m not very happy with the seaming and will mostly likely redo the seams. I’ve yet to knit up the pockets. Button bands have been knit and sewn on. The shawl collar and been knit and is ready to sew on.

Happy crafting. I’ll be back soon.

No, really, I will.
