My Secret Pal 5, the one to whom I sent gifties, was Carrie I really enjoyed picking out presents for her. The person who spoiled me was Chappysmom.

I had to give up the denim blue Regia Silk, as I couldn’t see the pattern well enough. I had to get out my magnetic board I used to… Continue reading Amble Sock 1
