    Wow! So impressed Laura! Beautiful and creative knits! My grandson loves his emarald green (he calls it guacamole) and wears it so much! Thanks! You might inspire me to go back to knitting!

    Laura from Sequim . . what a talent! Thanks for giving her space on your blog, totally inspiring. I can really related to her desire to knit Northshore . . it’s all I can do to not cast on right NOW. (ahem, there are just six or seven other WIPs to finish first). But I can pick out colors from my stash . . and maybe swatch a bit . .
