via Instagram http://ift.tt/1zjFhvX Had myself a caking party on my birthday yesterday. This is all @kettleyarnco Twist and it's going to be an Exploration Station after seeing @mandobug and @milkyrobot share theirs on their podcasts. I'm going to hold off on casting on, until I've finished my current shawl project, though. It's good to know it's waiting for me though! #craft
