The thought of having a finished knit was so exciting I jumped right into seaming the collar onto my New York Cardigan. Then it became more and more apparent that the collar would not be long enough. I pressed on to the bitter end hoping it would stretch and magically fit. It was only a delusion though. And to make it worse, I have very little yarn left and I don't know if I'll have enough. Wow, do I sound whiny or what? It's been sitting in this state for weeks now and it's time to do something about it. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, I have tons of quilts in progress that I can't wait to show you. However, one particular custom order ate up a lot of my time last week!
A lady asked me to make a keepsake quilt for a fundraising auction for a 1st grade class. She sent me the "word patches" on which the kids had written all kinds of inspirational words on. I sewed them all on in the style of a ticker tape quilt, which was quite a feat considering how large this quilt ended up.
