He's right. As I'm getting close to completing something, I'm already thinking about how I'm going to photograph it so it's an interesting image, what am I going to say about it so it makes for interesting reading. There is just something so very satisfying about sharing your accomplishments with the broader community!
So, to that end, the Woodland Faerie Grotto cardigan for the Red Hill show is complete - just found the right buttons today. (never-ending quest of my life!) I have sewn and re-sewn this until I am 100% happy with my efforts. Others may look and think it not the best assembled piece ever seen, but I know it is the best I can do.
See, I detest sewing up my finished garments with a passion. I find it tedious, laborious and frustrating. It is invariably where I manage to turn a lovely piece of knitting into a home-made piece of crap. When I finish the knitting part, I want someone else (good) to come in and take it to completion. I am, however, vowing to work on my techniques this year, and take that "extra time and care" that is so obviously lacking (in my nature?!) I think I'll take one of those "finishing" classes at my LYS and see if that improves my disposition any...
and a little p.s.
now truly finished, Oatmeal Baby Hoodie's buttons.
