✒️✒️✒️✒️✒️ This was an excellent compilation of quotes from various writers on writing. I really enjoyed it and there was lots of good advice. I took a picture of a scarf I was making at the time because it matched the cover. 😄

Foxyfictionista @8little_paws this stitch is called a broomstick stitch or broomstick lace stitch. It involves creating a bunch of loops on a knitting needle and then crocheting them together. It's actually really easy to do and it's such a beautiful stitch. I'm only just learning to knit but I haven't been practicing much because I've been loving making scarves with this stitch lately. 4y
8little_paws Neat! I'll have to look into that. 4y
