Weekend Update: Biased

Good morning my lovelies! I’m in a very good mood today because I just had 11 hours of sleep and feel incredibly refreshed and energetic.

Velvet hugs from Malabrigo

Procrastination is my middle name. Mostly that comes back to bite me in the arse, but sometimes it turns out to be a blessing in disguise!

Sometimes, it’s not meant to be.

Okay, guys. You know what? I’m done with this shit. DONE, I tell you. This sweater has been on my WIP pile so long I don’t even remember how long. Five, six years? It was supposed to be my first-ever sweater. I was so excited. And then …… a mistake happened. I realized how hard it…
