Sweaterday: Two-Tone

I made so much progress on my Raindance over the last week! Spending seven hours in a car over the weekend on the way to and from Steamboat Springs will do that for a person. It’s a lot of stockinette stitch and pretty boring but great for being in a […]

Welcome to the new blog site!

Here we are at the new and maybe one day improved Threadpanda.com! As I mentioned on the old blog, I haven’t had much to write about. I am working on my Lilac Wine cowl and it’s coming along quite well. It’s a bunch of 1×1 ribbing, so not terribly thrilling […]
