Simplicity’s ‘It’s So Easy’ is apparently a bit too hard for me at the moment! While sewing the trousers (4023) for the first time, I happily – and securely – sewed both ‘front’ halves together at the side and did the same with the back. Oops! I evidently can’t handle two legs and tried to make it for one leg/a skirt…Ah, the joys of being too distracted to do academic work…Off I go to unpick the very sturdy seams.
I managed to unpick and quickly sew the front to the back as intended…and then two seams later, realised I had goofed again!…Clearly, there are some days when completed sewing isn’t in the forecast.
On a happier note, I recently photographed my yarn stash for cataloguing and inspiration, and I found some great things at the charity shop the other day. I have never found any sort of interesting notions at nearby shops, but in Edinburgh the other day, I came across some exciting things. Of course the haul is not as impressive as I see from U.S. thrift shops, but its the best I’ve found in the UK (besides on the Isle of Arran where I got a bagful of knitting needles for 10p a pair)!
