Getting gifts for our angel

Folded like a deck of cards…

Ok, so I didn’t wait to receive the order for those Hiya Hiyas. A few hours later, I went back and purchased the 5″ Hiya Hiya Sharp steel interchangeable set.

I started her off simple, the only thing she needed to know was single crochet, how to increase, and how to decrease. No written pattern was […]
