Yup. I finally finished the blue sweater. It took 2 evenings to sew up, crochet the collar, and weave all those ends in. And I used one skein less than I originally calculated.
It’s a basic drop shoulder sweater to replace my favorite sweatshirt. The silouette is almost identical to the sweatshirt that I bought over 10 years ago. I bought it on a trip and have never been able to find another one like it. And it looks a bit ratty now. Or should I say katty? It’s got punctures from all the kitty cat claws over the years.
Now that I’ve figured out a pattern for it, I foresee at least another one in the near future.
No pictures until the weekend. That’s how I’ve decided to solve the problem of not posting more often. I don’t have time to fiddle with the pictures, cropping, uploading, and then updating the blog during the week. I feel guilty for not updating more often. I stress. And I post less.
Well, I’ve decided that I don’t have to have pictures every day. And feeling guilty and stressing defeats the purpose of this blog. It’s supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to document my progress through exploring the various fiber arts. It’s not supposed to be a point of stress.
