Ha! apparently this Wednesday/Thursday mash-up is a getting to be a “thing” around here. It’s not that I plan for Wednesdays to come undone, but sometimes they do … and I’m practicing being OK with that. ✔ Thing One.
Yesterday started out really well. I snapped this photo of my top after I finished the neckline facing. See what I mean about the inside being so pretty?That center seam in the front and the back and those curved serged edges on the facings ♥
The next (and last) step was the hem facing. and that’s where I unraveled. Many hours later, I finished. Maybe you can tell what went awry with my first attempt?The fix entailed a lot of seam ripping, a trip to Joann’s for thread, re-cutting the facings (thank goodness I had an extra 1/8 yard) and … time! I am really happy with the finished piece (well almost-finished – I still need to tack down the arm and neck facings) – it fits and I’ll be able to wear it to bookclub tonight (FO photos coming). ✔ Thing Two.
It was after 8pm when I finally sat down last night. I decided a little knitting would be just the thing and I finished up the third color of my ADVENTurer wrap. I am completely smitten with the project, but whoa! the knitting is slow going. Now that I’ve completed two repeats with “full balls” of the kidsilk haze (the gray and the red), I’m confident I can work four (maybe even five) repeats with those balls … so my original plan, which included only three repeats of each of those colors, is out the window. ✔ Thing Three. I think I’m even going to try to be a little random with the project – within the guideline of working a light purple repeat every 4th or 5th time. …stay tuned!
This last bit of news isn’t unraveling at all – Holly went back to the vet yesterday and she’s well! She even gained a pound 🙂 … and a got a much-needed bath and haircut.
Here’s to embracing all the things … even the unraveling ones.
