Well. I finished it in time! YAY! I officially finished it about 10 minutes before he called me wanting to come over at nearly midnight just to sit around and be with me (I know, so sweet, right?) I steamed it while waiting for him to drive over and laid it out on the floor… Continue reading The Marine: Part 2
Allow me to preface this post by saying that I can’t stand monotony. I’ve been working on nothing but The Marine’s scarf since he got home, more than a week ago.
