I have described the process of a few projects already on Lupey Loops but ever since I read the title for today, I've had that song playing in my head.
After making The Fab Four Amigurumi, the first thing I think of is The Beatles' song except with crochet and knitting references.
I read my mags today, oh joy!
Four thousand holes in crocheted cardigan
And though the holes were rather small
I had to stitch them all,
Now I know how many holes it takes to make a lacy shawl.
I'd love to try you on...
