Happy Friday, friends! I bumped my scheduled post for today (those long awaited Longwood Gardens photos- they will be Monday’s post now, I promise!) in favor of this really cool one!

That was when I realized that now would be a good time to do the research for it! Continue reading Needle Art Mysteries: Knitting
