What are these tubes you speak of?

In Ewe Tubes by Shannon1 Comment

At Ewe Tubes, we’re a bit cranky. Meaning we love to use our circular knitting machine to crank your yarn into tubes for all kinds of awesome FOs, including socks, leg warmers, fingerless mitts, and neckwarmers.

I’m taking part-ish in the Shelbey Monae Book Club on Instagram, basically starting for the August books, so we’ll see if that helps with my reading and finishing of books.
