One of these days I will be more organised with my time....
So are we all so vulnerable then? If we like and appreciate what we have made then who cares what others think?
It depends on the type of friends and family you have I suppose but I find that it's better if I don't 'see' people receiving their presents. I do try to mix a made gift and a bought gift - just in case!
Ah, the fragile ego of creative people.........
At least I know my sister will appreciate anything made! Her purple beret is finished but as the yarn was so thick, the overall number of stitches was smaller so the lovely linen stitch band around the bottom is a bit on the tight side. I had planned it on the small side - but not that small!! So, I might be unravelling the band .....
I think actually getting some aran weight yarn is probably the best solution really.
On the good side, I'm beginning to know the pattern off by heart now!
But I have still got time to play as I actually started early on this project and have time to spare! So I must keep on track as our Easter holidays have now started and they have a way of flying by - just when you don't want them to!
But now I'm off to bed,
