We Interrupt This Program to Bring You an Update on the Dang Sweater-Coat.....

What was it that Kamikaze soldiers used to yell? Something like....AIIIIYEEEEEE!!!!!! This sweater-coat is NOT going properly. The collar is so blah that I won't even insult your eyes by posting a pic of it. I will most likely rip it out again, dang it. And I don't like the first sleeve that I knitted so I will most likely rip it out as well. Sigh.... The only things I'm happy with so far are the facings that I knitted for the front closure area and maybe the Peri's Parasol edging on the bottom. About the facings: I want this sweater-coat to have hearty, "firm" edges since I intend to wear it on-the-run while working in bad weather, but I've got to admit, too, that I'm a "facing fanatic". I will knit a facing at the drop of a hat. I'm positively obsessive about inside edges being neat. And I get a thrill out of blocking this kind of stuff, don't ask me why. By the way... as you all know, I belong to a 12-Step Program--and it suggests that I be perfectly honest in all things. So I guess I will have to admit here that......AAAARGH....AAARGH.....(give me a minute)..... I will admit here that my waistline does NOT go in as far as I have demonstrated in the picture. There, I feel better now....

Anyway, it's back to the drawing board regarding the collar and that darn sleeve.

The sweater looks great - so stop that whingeing lol! The socks are pretty cute too :)
I loved the story of the samll town emergency - so lucky really. A call I made for road service for my car was answered by someone hundreds of miles away and I got into BIG trouble coz I didn't know the name of the road I was on. I didn't even know the road had a name - plus any dill who lives in my city would know the only road from the airport into town! Finally got it sorted! Cheers, Judith
