Posts Tagged ‘Secret of the Stole KAL’


I’m crying Uncle on the Secret of the Stole KAL.  My poor steroid altered brain just can’t count and keep the numbers straight.  Knitting each row takes forever because I’m counting and recounting and then frogging and counting some more.  I’ll keep up with the pattern posts and save them for later when my brain is functioning normally.  Or at least functioning as normal as it ever did.
