I don't know if the pyschiatrist in me is trying to defeat the procrastinator in me by setting the clock fast, but I keep losing a day. I should be relieved that today is only Wednesday, not Thursday, but I can't shake the feeling that I'm missing something or wrong about the amount of time I have.
All of my at home hours are now completely dedicated toward sewing. Things were smooth until last night when I got to attaching the collar to the first pajama top. This time around, I chose to do the notched collar version of the pattern; something I wish I would have practiced in my test-run. The pattern instructions are... Sparce; rather, non-existent.
It got to the point I needed to put down my seam ripper and walk away so I didn't go all "slasher film" on them. I got ready for bed, read this tutorial, and waited until this morning to take another stab.
It's not flawless, but it gets the job done. Hopefully, the next two won't be such a headache.
Thanks to help from your amazing suggestions, my shoulder seams are looking practically perfect. I'm thrilled! Little victories! YAY! I ended up using a combination of CafPow's
gathering technique and Grainline's tutorial for French seams on sleeves. Clearly, the results speak for themselves.
Knitting for the next few days is strictly commute only. I'm packing a pair of socks and working on them when I can. It would be nice to finish another pair before the year is over. Keep on, keeping on, lovely people. I'm eager to see what you're working on this week!
