As always after a trip, there's lots of laundry and cleaning to do. I managed to make some progress on my appliqué project, though.

The big news this week is (drumroll, please) I finally steeked DH's Fair Isle sleeveless cardi! Ta-da!
Before I could do that, I had to graft the shoulders. It was just like doing the toe of a sock, only more sts.
Then I had to give the extra sts a haircut on the inside. Here's… Continue
