Finishing Phobia (or fear of sewing)
I'm so much happier with the sweater now. Here's it blocking in my apartment. Sweater on floor, sleeves on the ironing board
Note how it actually fits a human body now. Here's me in my sweater sans sleeves.
Now scarves . . . those are finish free joys. Weave in two ends, a little blocking and you're in business! Here's David's cable scarf on the needles and blocking
It was only when I was blocking both the scarf and the sweater at the same time did I notice a certain beigeness to my knitting of late. The next two projects I'm casting on are going to be all about COLOR! I'm doing the Knit - Picks market bag, and Knitty.com's tubey
I've also discovered yarn as a decorating element. Being away from home, hearth and hubby (the list is NOT in order of importance), means knitting is the thing that's kept me sane. Baskets of yarn are like little cozy reminders of home.
These are some of the colors I'm using for Tubey. More pics of colorful cast ons later. Back to understudy rehearsal!
