To dream of places yet to see, to wonder how it all will be,


Life takes us in many directions, some planned, some unexpected.
Let your inner compass guide you on your journey,
to connect with others and join in harmony,
bringing more love into the world and all our lives

Hint: This will give a super neat edge to your work. No sl-st is made in folded fltr, only in

To check the tension of your slip stitches, ensure you can easily pass your hook under
both loops, tension should be kept relaxed to allow movement in the edges of your
work.
