sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things


Otis: the back is complete, and I attempted to do a three needle bind-off to join one shoulder to the back last night. In fact, I attempted it no less than three times. Lesson learned: when you use short rows to accomplish your shoulder shaping, you need to work one row across to pick up your wraps before you 3NBO. It’s really difficult, if not impossible, to pick them up while doing the bind off.

Water, water everywhere: it’s the hot water heater. It must be replaced. But it’s disconnected now, so I can do a final mop up, and clean as much as I can with cold water. It’s such a relief to just not feel like I will float away any minute.
