Nana Challenge Update

Things are almost on schedule. I put on one neck binding this morning before work. This stuff does not like to behave for stitching by hand. So – “only” need to finish the French seams, put in the sleeves and hem. Then it’s experimenting for the wings. Almost forgot possible gowns for the Biddies, sigh – but I still should make it.

Mitten production is another story. Only 6 rows to finish my second one. Don’t know if I stopped last night because I was tired or that I don’t like how it turned out – probably a combination. There is a noticeable difference in carrying the color in opposite hands, but I keep telling myself my hands aren’t next to each other often for anyone to notice. I’ll probably keep the ends visible so I can frog it later. It will do for now – need them for Sunday.

And we are well aware of the weather reports for Sunday, so we’re no encouraging any updates.

hmmmm...it remains to be seen.

It's Thursday morning - 3 more wake ups (glup!)
French seams finished and sleeve hems done!
Remaining tasks:
1)Put in bias tape at wrists for elastic
2) Set in sleeves
3) hem
4) make wings
5) robes for Biddies (maybe)

My mittens are done - will write about THAT some other time - no time to frog (sigh!)

I'm taking off tomorrow to pack - need time to think.
