This week, I think I’m on a roll with finishing projects, which is somewhat rare and hopefully productive and satisfying. Last night I resurrected a six-month-old forgotten project, and I’ve finished with the Malabrigo Loafers (except for their soles and taking photographs..), so now I’m feeling free to start up something new.

I designed and knit these…
