And here we are in 2018. I have a lot of expectations from this year and a lot of projects that can wait to start, to finish and to share with you.
I begin 2018 with a sweater so easy to make and which I hope will convince you to make it and to start crocheting if you don’t crochet yet, because is so fun. Is simple but also eyes caching and I love it.
