    Oh Melissa I think you can read my mind. I am also doing a test knit atm but have stalled because I just did not have the confidence to “knit neck band” I had no clue where to start, I am going to give it another go following your instructions and will give your links a look too.

    The #3 bag set is just lovely goodness knows how much postage would be.

    Great cast! I LOVE💗💗💗 her bags!! It’s hard to decide but… I thing the cognac country is my favorite. At least I think.. or maybe the Casablanca circles 🥰 or the Tree of Life😍
    My top pick for the give away would be the yard bowl or the medium bag and notion bag!
