You CAN craft at hockey practice!

My middle is taking hockey lessons. On Saturdays. At 7:30am.  That means I get to drive middle and youngest to a freezing cold rink when it’s already 80 outside. I come prepared with blankets usually, but an hour and a half of sitting in the cold really does a number to my aging fingers.  So today while my youngest was reading and playing, I decided to weave.
