My Most Fun Repair Job

                     A very naughty Puppy used this toy Elephant as a Chew Toy.  I used two                                          yarns to make a subtle Visible Mended patch.

welcome 2017

Well 2016 was a rough year! But hope reigns eternal is something I always say to myself.
I have been working 6 days a week at The Little Knittery in Atwater Village, Ca 6 starting the first week in December and now with  Pussy Hat Project which was originated at the shop my original schedule has remained the same and the closer we get to The Woman's March on Washington the more knitters come in to buy pink yarn to knit hats and the more donated hats come in. 
I have only had time to knit 5 hats but I am happy I could knit those! I used Marabrigo Rios and stock to the original Design.
