* Antiprocrastination April

We all have one. You might even have more than one. That pattern that you've been intending to knit for forever. The yarn you've been saving for the "perfect project". The fiber you say you can't use because you're spinning isn't good enough yet. The technique you've been meaning to learn for forever but aren't sure you're up to it.

The time has come!  Pick up those needles, wind the yarn, spin the fiber and learn the technique. It's time to stop procrastinating and start doing!

Rules:
You must be a member of the group
One post per person, but you may edit the post as much as you like to add more than one project
You must have include a link to your Ravelry project page that has pictures. We want to keep things fair!

  1. Hi guys! Two questions that I couldn't find in the notes. #1. What were the sweaters that you were wearing? The yarn is lovely and they look similar in design. #2. The name of the easy shop that had the ball holder that Mama Linda held up, please. Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Paula!

      Those are just store bought sweaters. :)

      Mom bought her yarn keeper from this Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Craftiness. Though, it looks like he's on a break right now.

      Hope that helps!

      Brianne :)
