Okay since our phone call yesterday, which was so extremely helpful and I can't thank you enough for explaining the Springtime Bandit chart to me, this is what I have so far.
Not gonna lie, I did have to frog it twice before I finally got through the start-up chart, but I definitely have the hang of it now. It's gonna be so pretty!
In other news, this is the hoard of needles I bought off ebay for ten bucks last week. They range from 1-15. I think the only way I'd feel more excited about getting a bunch of needles this cheap was if I got them for free, ahem haha. What kinds of needles did your grandma's collection include? I don't think you ever said.
I can't wait 'til my circulars arrive!
