Yet again I’m late sorry everyone!!
But I’m trying to play catch up 🙂 and the kicker is I started writing this post Friday or sat:)
So onto the post lol
Yay! Another week
Who’s enjoying these posts
This week I picked a mini mitten and sock pattern…and while I typed it up my mum(from yarn upon a dream) crocheted the mitten…and to be totally honest neither of us could wrap our minds around the sock pattern, so if you try it I would love to see it and maybe you could explain it to me lol.
