I wrote a pretty average poem for this project, but there is so much I want to talk about and a short poem just wasn't going to encompass it. You may remember a dying project of mine from over a year ago. Well, the subsequent knitting project is finally on its way! After many test squares trying… Continue reading A rainbow with the blues
