|The white sweater still looks the same, so here's my garden!|
I eventually realized this was going nowhere fast (since I would run out of yarn before finishing at that rate), and that I should just rip the whole thing back and start over. Only, I didn't want to face that cast-on with the fancy edging again. Sure, it wouldn't be that bad with the reduced stitch count, but then again...
I decided it was time to ask the girl what her ideal sweater would be like. "Smooth!" She said. "Faaaancy!" She said, with the idea conveyed more by the hip shake and waving arms than the word itself could manage on its own. I asked her what would make it "Faaaancy!" in that particular way, and she said wanted various figures on it, or so I gathered (it became a long list). Because she will likely change her mind on just what figures and how they should look at least eight times between now and when it's done, I've settled on embroidery as the means for adding the figures.
I've also decided hey, why not share the whole process on the Blog as I go!
|Hmm, perhaps pink flowers as embroidery subject?|
