Newsletter

Hi, Knitters!  I have decided to send out a monthly newsletter!  Nothing fancy, it will be sent at the end of each month, and show all stitches I have posted for that month.  If I have also released free or paid patterns, I will link those as well.  Perhaps a knitting tidbit or two on occasion.  If you would like to sign up, you may do so using the sign up in the right column of the blog.  The first one will be sent at the end of August 2013.
