Into the Unknown

Lindsay Lewchuk Announcements, Into the Unknown (2022 theme), Meanwhile in Maine, Pattern Related, Slip and Rise Pattern Club 4 Comments

We got chatting about Maine and the move and other big 2022 events… Puddles 10-year gotcha anniversary ☹, and cough, turning 40, cough. She threw out “into the unknown”. And ya know what, it was perfect! Not a daunting kind of ‘unknown,’ but a year of adventure in stitches which didn’t restrict the creative juices to one particular cast on / bind off method. “Into the Unknown” was born with joy and friendship, new possibilities, and future new locales!
