FO Report: Gytha

Gytha’s done and I can hardly believe it. In keeping with the overall theme of this project, weaving in the ends and sewing in the sleeves was not only easy it was downright enjoyable. I’ve never done such a good job of sewing sleeves into an armhole. I only swore a couple of times and […]
