Good night last night
Posted August 29, 2007on:
The knitting club was good last night, 5 of us turned up. A bit disappointing after such a good start last week, but we had a great chat and good fun! That’s what it’s all about really. I must try and not let the stares from other people in the coffee shop bother me. I know they’re just curious, but I feel a bit like a monkey in a cage when I look up and see them staring. I suppose I should be more pro-active and ask them if they want to join in!
I was working on the Summertime Tunic and it flies along!
I have finished the armholes on Dad’s sweater now. I just need to sew up the two side seams and I’m done! Woohoo! I’ll probably leave that until the weekend when I can do it in daylight. I’ll probably try mattress stitch again as I think that seems to leave the most invisible join? It’ll take me hours as I’m hopelessly bad at seaming. Still, when it’s done, I’ll be really proud of myself!
I made a decision this morning to dump the evil Tivoli Serene Alpaca sweater. I’ve just had enough. I gave it my best shot, but the yarn is so pernickety that it won’t even meet me part way and try and behave. It definitely is evil personified.
I must try and think of a way to dispose of it that will satisfy my hatred for it. Any suggestions for ways that you “bumped off” yarns that you hated?
