in all fairness

i need to record the failures as well. life is not what happens in instagram where everything is cool, pretty and successful. for me weaving is about process and knitting is about product. no sloppy product will dishonor an honest  craftsperson.
starting the infamous silk cardi again. wrong measurements led to only half sleeves.
sleeve measurements need to be x2  DUH! and since i was doing the sleeves again why not do all as the collar  came out not too sharp.

tiny movements that make the difference between 
 a stitch becoming a ladder or being easily transferred. honing the craft.
yes,i'll get there .ganbaru💪

block chain

 the knitting has finished. the blocking has started. back and the two fronts here first as theyy need to be sewn together to add the sleeves, sleeves will come next. i have plenty of blocking wires but not a big enough blocking matt. you can never win.
 after this cardi there's going to be some serious sewing. three projects have been waiting for a year.
