May Craft Completion Update!
So, I feel that the May Craft Completion month is going a bit slowly. I was on a roll and then I hit a wall with a bit of a disaster with the Marriage Sweater! I managed to complete the sleeve to pattern, beautifully sew it in so Mark could try it on then disaster struck! The sleeve was WAY too narrow! I partially blame Mark's gym junkie, bicep building regime of late.
After a bit of a tantrum about the sweater, I reassessed the pattern and have started on another, larger sleeve, which so far is looking much better. It's a bit of a set back and due to my amazing hand sewing skills, the sewn in sleeve has been a nightmare to get out. However, onward and upward and I hope to still get this baby completed within May, even if it means that other projects won't be finished.
Maybe the list was a little long? I guess I aimed high to finish all of this in a month but it is good to set a goal, even if you can only get halfway through it!
The red cowl has had a major set back with this project running out of yarn. My lovely pal David ordered some additional yarn from Bendigo Wool Mills on my instruction but I managed to order the wrong colour red! I mean, there is a huge difference between Cherry and Holly?!?!
With the lack of yarn to complete the project, it looks like this project will be carried over into June. I have managed to make a decision on how to finish it up so stay tuned! It has been inspired by some of my favourite Marimekko!
