Not only were they plentiful, they were lofty and thirsty, in a perfect size, round and scalloped. When I asked which pattern she used, she said it was one a former neighbor had given her. She wasn’t sure she even still had it.  I offered …read more

I thought I’d fixed it once, not long after it was published, but since I never completely re-knit it to be sure – the error persisted while I was off to new patterns and other projects. The Vintage …read more
