great looking sweater
this is the second one I have ordered. the first looked and felt great-no itch. the fit was roomy which I liked. sadly, the first time it was washed it shrank. washed it according to directions, hand wash, cold water, dried flat. this one will go to the dry cleaners. if it shrinks after dry cleaning I will post a down graded review. just a caution to readers of this.
Love the colours of this scarf
this is for me, when it is cool outside...no real cold in Florida. the colours are very warm and different and so are the pattern...very south America and I love it! merci
Got this for my fella who has had a stroke. I left the paperwork, showing 4 different designs which can be made, on the counter with all the puzzle pieces dumped out and the frame sitting empty. He was immediately fascinated with it! Brainwork, eye to hand coordination, colors/shades/shapes of pieces ... so many skills to practice! We are pleased!
