2018: WIPed into shape

There’s an idea that you shouldn’t carry baggage from the old year into the new one. I don’t think that’s a bad idea really, but considering the time investment some craft and DIY projects have I think we can safely say there’s some wiggle room there. That said I do have a number of WIP…

The future of Otakraft

Happy New Year! Time to make up some new excuses for why I did practically nothing last year!  Hmmm, let’s try honesty, I was lazy and didn’t put in the effort.  Oh, except a shawl I was working on for my mother for Christmas, let me tell you how that went… Just not well at all….
