Needle Tart

If I'm not knitting or sewing something, I must be cooking something!

Olympic Update

The toes went lickety split and the increases worked out just fine. The size is great on my foot. Then we got to the gusset increase. So far I ripped it back twice. This is not easy to do when you're working from both ends of the ball, no place to wind up the pulled out yarn. I've got a fist sized tangle of yarn that I'm trying to create a heel from. Wish me luck.
I took the sewing machine to the shop yesterday. The light bulb burnt out and I discovered that aside from not having any more light bulbs, I somehow crushed the end of the screwdriver that one uses to remove the light bulb (Bernina. Fabulous design. The screwdriver that you use to put in needles has an indented handle that just fits around the light bulb.) Oh well, it was time for a check up any way. The lady said, "I have to warn you, it may take a week or two to find the parts."
I replied, "That's OK. I still have three more machines if I have a sewing emergency."
And my family thinks I'm nuts.
