tying up loose ends
the cardigan is done, buttons and all, and i LOVE it! the hat, on the other hand, is a thorn in my side. i embroidered little blue flowers on the hat, but alas--they were nearly invisible. AND they made the hat too bulky to boot. so now it's just a plain little hat, and though it bores me to tears, i guess it's OK to give it along with the sweater. i am tempted to rip it out and stripe it or something. hmmm... maybe i'll make another stripey one tonight. meanwhile--the lace for the pillowcases was coming along well until i noticed a MISTAKE in it, about 3 repeats ago. and it's just one teeny twisted stitch of a mistake that no one can even see, but man--it's buggin' the crap out of me! to rip or not to rip... i am trying to talk myself out of it. i'll let you know how that goes.
