Indie Design Gift-a-Long — Designer Interviews! Tania Richter / AetherFang

As part of the Indie Design Gift-a-Long, there’s a massive blog-hop going on, with many of the nearly-300 participating designers interviewing each other.

Chawton Mittens — Re-released!

Long-time readers of this blog will remember my Chawton Mittens, which were originally published in the inaugural issue of the Jane Austen Knits magazine all the way back in 2011.
