Do you ever have those projects that just come together? You barely have to do anything, and zip!, they’re done and better than you could have expected?
I wonder if there’s a Saint or G-ddess involved, sometimes.
My little iPod cozy was exactly like that today. Last night I grabbed a length of purple ribbon (and threw it in my bag, vowing to work on it today), which turned out to match the purple in the sock exactly (wow!). And, when I went to sew it by hand this morning there was a needle already threaded on the CL hand-sewing pin cushion with matching purple thread. Whoaaaaa. It was mind-blowing. Then, there was more of that thread in the Purple drawer to match.
And, when I got home, I found a honking big black button to finish it all off (to cover the snap threads).
Must be payback for my good karma or something. Thank’s Emmos for the sock! I love how it worked out :D
And, also weirdly enough, when we did our sewing samples today in class – I didn’t have to rip it all out (not once). Tres bizarre, non?
Here’s the front of the “fall front” trouser sample (think 17-19 century breeches):
I started a basic sock project last night, to have for lectures. Knee-high fishnets, if they work. I fear taking my lace projects in. Taking notes and knitting lace at the same time isn’t possible for me.
So, yeah. Pix later. I have to wait an hour to find out if I have jury duty tomorrow. Pray for me that I don’t. I’m all for jury duty (I am!), just not in week 8 of classes (eek!). I suppose I could get a lot of knitting done, but imagine how badly I’d fall behind in my classes…
