This weekend was gloriously warm and sunny.
Perfect for washing fleece!
Here are Felix and Griff batches drying on the picnic table.
They looked so gorgeous sitting there that I just had to take a minute to thanks the sheeps that make this all possible.
So I went out to visit the guys and spend a little time telling them how cool they are.
And I took them some of their favorite treats- salmonberry branches.
What a cool bunch of guys.
Also wanted to provide an update on the Monkey Sweater.
Here’s the thing. It was done. Off the needles.
And I liked it.
But I didn’t love it. And it was my fault.
I made it too large.
I can wear it (and have), and the shoulders fit fine, and the sleeves are the right length and everything.
But somehow the body is too big. Baggy.
And when I wear it, I think it looks kinda schlumpy.
And I don’t want that for the Monkey Sweater.
I want to love the Monkey Sweater.
I’ve been thinking about it alot.
And I tried it on again yesterday and came up with a plan.
I’m taking it in.
All the way up each side and through the underarm.
According to my not-so-scientific calculations, that should bring it back to Perfect Sweater size.
I intend to operate tomorrow.
Wish me luck.
Good luck with the operation. But it is the right move. If you do not love it, fix it!
thanks. that’s exactly how I feel. like I can’t move on until I get it right.
Love your blog…you must live in the GNW…think that is the only place with great weather recently…anyway..I want to follow your blog, if I may…
sure! welcome Phyllis!
You never cease to amaze me! Can’t wait to hear/see how the tailoring went. I’m curious what you’re going to do when you get to the underarm.
surgery was a sucess! hope to post description and photos of the procedure tonight 🙂
