…build confidence. The photo below is from yesterday morning, after I finally got up the courage (and the brain power*) to take my new serger out of the box and flip through the manual.“Overwhelmed” would’ve been an understatement (not only because I’ve used a serger exactly once – the night of my Lark Tee sewing class – and even then all I did was serge four edges of a t-shirt). I decided to wait another day (there was a silver lining – my craft room is now completely neat and tidy … and I knitted 😉 ).
Thanks to that *below, I didn’t go to knitting this afternoon. Instead, I set up the serger.
I learned to thread it (happy to report that the reviews I read were spot on – it wasn’t hard, just fiddle-y and wow, I needed the tweezers that came with the machine). It took me a pile of scraps and re-threading both the top needles, but I got it!
Really got it!
which is a very good thing … because my next project is Hadley. which I hope to wear to bookclub on Thursday evening.
Confidence is a good starting point!
I hope your week is off to a good start, too – Happy Monday!
*I’ve been sick! still am honestly. hopefully it’s just a cold and another few days will have me back to feeling like myself. or at least not feeling cotton-headed.
