Keep Calm and Craft On

When experiencing a little hiccup in your crafting project this is a good quote to remember.

Recently I attempted a knitting project where I made a rather large mistake, which meant I had to pull out all the rows and start again.

This quote came to my mind and I realised, mistakes are part of a crafter’s journey and not getting too upset is the key 🙂

The craft inspiration for this week is all about ease and an article that reminds you there are some serious crafters out there.
