In Time Out:
Anna frogged the sweater that was knit for her trip Edinburgh this past May. She also has a Tomten sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman that is in time out too. Anna dubbed Bethany the Knitting Whisperer due to Beth's amazing ability to coax cranky projects into behaving.
Bethany has nothing specifically in time out. Except for a very old Harry Potter sweater from "Charmed Knits" that has been in time out since 2011. www.amazon.com/Charmed-Knits-Projects-Harry-Potter/dp/0470067314/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468801676&sr=8-1&keywords=charmed+knits

Starting anything is the hardest part of all and once you get things started they just keep rolling. I started my website there was no traffic. It has been a year and now there are 1000 visits daily.
