I’m back! I just returned from my vacation to Thailand with my partner, Sam. We had a wonderful time and I am missing that 40-degree weather (realistically, it was insanely hot, but I’ve got my rose coloured glasses on already). I missed my sewing machine and my blog, and I am grateful to Caroline for handling the podcast while I took a break. It was nice to have a chance to breathe and reflect on some things. As you might expect, I am back with new energy and ready to tackle new projects and challenges. Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly!
Judith Dee hosted a Blackwood Cardigan Sewalong on her Youtube Channel! This is a great resource for anyone wanting to try the Blackwood. Thanks, Judith!
