This is a different sort of post for me. Usually, I don’t post about things until they’re over and done. But, I’ve been procrastinating about this project long enough – I’m going to give myself a little motivation by outing my lazy self to you all. My pretty green rogue has been in sweater purgatory for… well, a long while. I’m kind of afraid to see how long it’s been. It’s been waiting for… a steek.
Today, I had a nice long block of time available while I waited for the boys. So, I sat at the edges of a mass of middle-school-aged kids and Lego robots, and started hemming the sweater. Here’s a before picture for you – I hope to have an after in a day or two.
I’m planning to machine sew the edges before I cut – this is slippery superwash wool, knit loosely. The yellow cotton you see in the picture is going to be my ‘this is the middle stitch’ guide for when I’m machine sewing (and cutting, for that matter!)
If any of you have advice or encouragement, please sing out in the comments. I need all the help I can get! Better yet, do any of you have projects sitting in steek purgatory? If so, consider digging them out and steek along with me.
