sometimes it comes in handy
having multiple obsessions er, hobbies, like quilting. easy to pick a matching thread for marina's buttons when one can choose from the handy folding thread caddy.
i seem to have an inordinate fondness for colors 852 and 864, as i have two of each.
picked a color to blend with calluna number 891.
words cannot express how much i love marina, it's like a comfy sweatshirt that goes with everything. the colors are very hard to capture in a photo, it is inbetween these two.
only change i made was; instead of binding off the steek stitches for the neck, i kept them live. then when it was time to pick up the collar, the steek stitches went back on the needle. that way you can knit the collar in the round, and the steek goes all the way to the top of the neck edge. i think i picked up that tip from wendy a long time ago.
before i washed marina, the buttonbands were basted with a zigzag, and a running stitch along both sides, didn't want it to gap while on the woolly board.
perused the patterns on hand, maybe golden plover would rather be marilyn, sigil, a cable and lattice pullover, or the wrixlan jacket? maybe it would rather be little rivers no link, only cardiganized? or anne of cleves, it's original destination?
decisions, decisions. any thoughts gentle readers?
the girls could care less.
