Bettina Cardigan KAL – 4th part: The Double I-cord Finishing

This week was no different than last week! Lots of pictures were posted on the PeaceKnitLove facebook page, showing the progress of the pieces of the people who are participating.

This event is always so fantastic, there’s so much happening at the same time that we can’t afford to miss a thing!
