I met my first incentive goal to finish 5 things by May 31. That means I get a professional pedicure, which is timely as I tend to be a barefoot gal now that the weather is warm.
The completions for this incentive were all small items (sort of):
This is my Hippie Child, and she picked out the orange batik fabric. The headband should be ironed, but that doesn’t jive with the hippie lifestyle.
Upcycled Wool Mittens. I have about 10 pairs of these babies that need completion; I’m sure they’ll be used to top off any upcoming incentives. Yesterday, I finished four pairs.
A little embroidery made with some scraps from a recent (still unfinished) project.
I was actually hoping to finish the following item by this incentive date as well. I did finish it, but it doesn’t fit so well, so it’s back to the “unfinished” pile until I figure out how to fix it.
I’m torn between screaming and crying at this sweater. It’s too small across and under the shoulders. And I don’t know what to do. It’s not too tight in that area, but the sewn seams are cramming into my underarms. Do I just knit a few more rounds in the neck area to add length or do I unravel most of the yoke and try again? I need a sweater doctor!!!!! I’ll gladly accept advice here. Otherwise I’ll have to attend a knitting clinic in St. Paul, though it will be a few weeks until I can get there.
Next incentive: finish 6 projects by June 10 for new shoes…(yay!! I do need new sandals).
