Two New Projects: Pineapple shawl and Sunshine coat

A magazine deadline has been and gone, and this week I have found myself with two days off!  I haven’t been in that situation for a few weeks so I thought I’d spend some of the time relaxing, eating pancakes and devoting a bit of time to personal projects.  The first of these is the…
