Or I could title this post...One Down and Two to Go!
Last night I finished The Challenge with a week to spare. Yeah for me! I celebrated last night by working on something non-commission related. It was wonderful. (snicker) Actually what I worked on was a quilt for a charity auction and a pair of socks for my sister for Christmas and these are both deadline pieces. So basically I just traded one kind of commitment stress for another.
The green sweater is well on it's way and the client wants it by Christmas. No problem. The tank top is at the end of the queue.
Blocking is a wonderful thing. Not only does it produce a wow factor with lace, it hides your mistakes and transforms your work into something beautiful. If you are ever wondering if you should block a sweater, look at this.
What a difference...n'est pas????? (note to self....pictures are better when taken in natural light.....but you get the idea)
Now that this sweater is finished, it's back to the grindstone. At least I've got some nice baby alpaca to fondle when the work load gets to me.
Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
