Do you keep clothes way past their due date? Old, torn, ill fitting.. yet...can't throw them away?
I have a few things that really should be trashed. I think this sweatshirt started out as my husbands.. I took it over when he was ready to trash it. I had the idea that it would be a good sweatshirt to wear while getting the garden ready. The end of the winter...beginning of spring..when it is still very cool outside..it could get covered with dirt and not really matter..It's junk. Right?
That idea was about 13 years ago..Every time I put it on, everyone scowls at me..and says the inevitable: "That thing should be trashed." "WHY?" I scowl right back, "It's clean!" I yell!
It's final demise came this week. The tear at the wrist seam was irritating..it would get in the way of anything I tried to do.. The perfect dirty job came up. My self cleaning oven is so old it no longer self cleans..and I have to use a toxic potion to get it clean..I put on my sweatshirt and gloves and scrubbed... Torn, smelly, and now filthy..I took it off and put it gently into the kitchen trash..
I love my comfy clothes..*sigh*
I really thought I would have a finished project to show off this week. My first sweater..the pattern is Karole. This has been a WIP for about a month until Berreco made the pattern available again. It disappeared for a while, but I emailed them and they archived it..
It is listed as a easy/beginner project. Perfect for me. All stockinette stitch and bind offs.. I can do that. I did do that. Sorta..
It figures that something labeled as "easy"..can confuse me..If anyone has or knows of a good tutorial for sewing/seaming a sweater together.. Please link it for me! Any and all support welcomed.. Really..help!
We are forcast for 8-10 more inches of snow this week...snowblower time..
Have a safe and happy week...
