is evil incarnate, and should be sentenced to reading every one of her patterns and writing them over in plain English. It took me over 15 minutes of staring at the instructions for the collar on the bobble jacket last night before I could figure out what in friggin’ hell she’s talking about. Never mind that it’s often harder for me to decipher patterns because as a left-handed person, I often have to reverse directions. But anyway, I got through it and collar is nearly done. Then just seaming the sides and sleeves and sewing on buttons. Woo hoo! I think I will definitely be able to give it to my mother by Monday or Tuesday to take along on her trip.
Tonight is my friend Brett’s birthday so instead of staying in and finishing the jacket as I’d planned, we’re going to do a low key dinner/movie evening. That means I should at least finish the collar this afternoon. What with tentative drink plans tomorrow night and the Oscars on Sunday, there isn’t too much time left. I hope to be outdoors on the weekend days since it’s supposed to be lovely. Ty deserves a long awaited day in the park, I think.
