More or less at the same time that I adopted cats (and I do not think that the events are unrelated) I developed a passion for knitting, which also perfectly matched the equal passion the kittens showed for wool balls. Continue reading “Week 33 – I am now officially a Knitter”

Truth is, I like to know what to expect, mostly because I tend to visualize my future and activities long before I am doing them and need to know what to expect.
