    I got mine from another knitter’s blog a long long time ago. Good to know another way to make them.
    How are you feeling lately? Has the little guy been naughty? ;)
    I am still stalling on the 63-square afghan … but I swear I’ll pick it up. Have you got a copy of Interweave Crochet? There is a jacket designed by Teva Durham that I want to make so much!
    Take care.
