    June 2019

    Another month has flown past and that’s still my excuse for the delayed post. Which is additionally embarrassing as it’s such a short one. ?

    Also known as Crocodile stitch, Dragon scale is very distinctive and I’ve been planning to try from the moment I saw it. I’ve had the yarn for it in my stash for months.
