A word from the designer:

Hugging Again
Where would we be without our friends? This has been a crazy tough year for everyone and we’re finally getting back to doing the things we love. I would like to say how grateful I am for the wonderful friends in my life. I’m sending out a giant hug of thanks for the hikes (even in the dead of winter), outdoor knitting sessions and all sorts of communication – zoom meetings, calls, texts, chats – it was all wonderful! I’m a hugger and it’s so good to be able to hug again.
As I was starting this ponchette, I talked with friends, detailing my plans for the yarn and beads, and received a great deal of encouragement from them. It made me realize, once more, how much I value their shared experiences, suggestions. I am grateful to everyone for their inspiration, support and long lasting friendships. I’m so glad we can hug again!
