When I told my husband that I was designing the Candyland collection, he said “A bit ambitious are we?”
When my 11 yr old son saw the gumdrops and the game blanket for the first time, he immediately stole them and I had to literally chase him down in order to take pictures (don’t worry, I promised I’d let him have them when I was done).
When my friend saw the pictures she said “Oh my goodness! Did you knit a game?!”
Yes dear friend. I did.
And you can too!! (I promise it is SOOO much easier than it looks).
