The good news is that I'm FLYING through the first sleeve on my father's long unfinished sweater ( modified drop shoulder (shaped sleeve cap) Kaffee Fasset inspired random stripe sweater...
Because when it's worn, it looks a bit like a molar...
I'm going to make a white one for my dentist, and one for her baby...
the two hats made from remnants steeked off the oversized panel of Dad's sweater.
It was raining yesterday, so I thought what a wonderful excuse to work on my sweater (Cable Guy from Son of a Stitch and Bitch).
I've decided to take a wee break and do the "cableguy" sweater from "Son Of Stitch and Bitch".
None of my files are attaching to my blog entries....it looks like they do, but when I save them...nothing shows up on the finished entry. HOLP! HOLP! (says the luddite).
