This Verdaia is one of those projects that just knits itself. You know the type… one day it’s just a little triangle on the needles, and overnight it’s apparently become a living, breathing demander of all knitting attention, flying off the needles at breakneck pace with nary a care for keeping you up to late, missing meals or work hours, or anything other than the…
