Hello! It’s Monday! And it’s freakin’ cold here in Massachusetts. What a way to start the week.
So, how was your weekend? Mine was, indeed, a better weekend than the last. Although, let’s face it, the bar was set pretty low. That said, my weekend included some pretty good moments. There was a great night out with friends during which we consumed several Mai Tais and copious amount of sushi. Yay. There was also a fun family game night of Monopoly and Racko that was enhanced by a delicious roast pork dinner cooked by yours truly.
And, of course, there was knitting. I finally tackled a project that’s been on my mind for ages. I fixed the button bands on my Twist sweater. Now, I never told you about this and it wasn’t even something I noticed when I first finished the sweater. Over time, though, those button bands just got way too ruffly and I stopped wearing the sweater. When I reorganized the craft room a few months back I found 2 extra skeins of the Peace Fleece I used for this and I decided I might as well attempt a fix. Since I considered it unwearable I really didn’t have anything to lose.
So, on Friday I ripped off the collar and left and right button bands. I spent the rest of Friday picking up and reknitting the button bands with about 14 less stitches than I originally had. On Saturday and Sunday I knit the collar and sewed the buttons back on.
And I think it’s a great fix. I don’t have pictures but I’m wearing it today and there’s nary a ruffle in sight.
I told you it was a better weekend.
