2014: Fix It Fridays Are Back!
I have globs of stalled projects* again, usually because there's some kind of issue that caused me to toss them aside while I worked on something more fun.
Well, it's time to crack that whip and get those projects back into shape! So I'm setting Fridays aside again to work on problems. Not exclusively, as I still want to work on my WIP's. Plus it's a nice reward!
First up is my Suzy Too! This is Melissa Leapman's crochet hoodie (officially named Suzanne). I wasn't happy with the way my sleeves went it (they're poofy) and I used a whip stitch for seaming ('cause I was impatient). Now I have to un-seam it, play with the sleeve cap and re-seam it with a mattress stitch. However, it's one step at a time. I'll just concentrate on picking out the seaming (and I think I'll probably take off the hood and re-do it as well...).
Hopefully I can move some UFO's to WIP's to FO's this year!
*I'm sure there's some deep rooted psychological issue here, but almost all the projects that are stalled are projects that are for me. I think I have a tendency of fixing issues with Matt's projects when they come up while I toss mine aside and start something new.
