|This is how I feel right now.|
Now I have to say this cowl did take a bit longer than I expected as I un-did and re-did it twice. I'm still a little unhappy about the seam along the back but I took a big girl pill and realized it's not that big of a deal and I'm the only one who would notice anyway. It has also taken a little longer than usual because its almost entirely done in single crochets, except two rows.
That's over 7500 stitches, but I'm super happy with the texture of it. I ended up using Caron's Simply Soft acrylic yarn and have to say I'm a fan. This is the second project I've used it on and have plans to start a brimmed beanie for myself as the next new project, after I finish two current ones of course.
That's not much of a distraction, you say? Listen to this. My loving husband decided spur of the moment to go out of town for a few days and I got a hair up my butt to build him a piece of furniture as a welcome home gift. (How proud I thought he would be to see me accomplish something big on my own from start to finish.) We recently got a new couch and ottoman for the living room so now I have renewed urge to remodel rooms in the house. I've been wanting to try my hand at building for some time now and what better time than when your capable husband is out of town to get yourself in what could be an over-your-head project? But I had a plan. Granted it was made in about an hour but a plan all the same.
So here I am with another unfinished project on my hands and a big mess in the garage. Plus I need to get my butt in gear to start planning the garden and yard work to start. OMG if I only had two more hands and 10 more hours in the day. Stay tuned for more developments and keep your fingers crossed for me!
Build on.....and on!
