|another ball of yarn stretched and drying on the swift|
I tried this sweater on again just before knitting the binding and if I were a full figure gal it would have been perfect but I'm not so I ripped again. It was perfect in the waist and hips but even wearing a button front shirt under it would not fill the excess in the bust. I thought about putting it away but then watching the olympics especially the segments of the athletes practicing and training I decided to have another go at it. I just need to pick myself up or rather needles and yarn again and keep on knitting. The cable pattern is in my head now and my hands know how tight to hold the yarn its just repetition now until its perfect and after trying it on again I think it's right --perfect on me fingers crossed --Ann--

Jacket from a green Irish wool my mother bought for me in 1977. My Irish grandfather always told me how classy it looked on me.
This is the year I'm going to make all those fabulous garments into quilts so I can enjoy the fabrics once again. I have to think that way because deconstructing has been very difficult. I go to my sewing room with the intention of cutting strips but rather than desecrate something I so lovingly made I find other things to do like tidy up, the sewing room was not meant to be tidy!
