A Bitter Pill
These photos are of my most recent project. It's (or was going to be) Elizabeth Zimmerman's February Sweater. I'm making it for Ann Spellman's new baby. I've already frogged it twice - just the yoke. NOW, I've really jacked it up. I had to call Biddy to have her regurgitate some of the same advice I constantly spew about how you MUST rip out and redo so that when you're done you're not focused on the mistakes that are left, but on the finished project at hand. Okay, it was a bitter pill to take, but swallowing hard, I took it out. It will be worth it. It will be worth it - my new mantra.
At Biddy's suggestion, I'm going to concentrate on something else - at least in a physical sense - and work on the never ending spiderman blanket or some newly requested ISU sweaters. Either one will be worked on with the EZFS on my mind.
As far as FOs go, here's my mint-chip Jaywalker socks. I love them.
p.s. the spiderman blanket is huge - it takes 20 minutes to do one round. Should have those last 15 rounds done sometime in 2010.
