Yarn Along | Celtic Cast On

It’s time for another yarn along with Ginny I’m afraid I haven’t got much reading done lately. I started listening to book 3 of the Hunger Games called Mockingjay but didn’t get very far.

Gamine | Celtic Cast On

Pattern: Gamine by Tori Gurbisz of Lachesis & Co Yarn: Paton’s Classic Wool Ok so I lied but not intentionally…. Gamine is my final FO of 2011.
