The thought occurred that by deleting seven hundred and ninety-nine posts it is possible - and I hope probable because otherwise I was nattering on about nothing - that information was deleted you valued. While there's an equally high probability that I'll repeat myself at some point in the future, if you'd like me to get to that topic sooner, just ask and I'll see what I can do.
The sweater refashion is done except for the hem and three of the six snaps. All the snaps left in stash are silver and that won't work so I'll pick up more later. I would like help with the hem and will pack the sweater in my visiting bag for Wednesday and ask my friend.
The back is shaped with elastic inside a casing made from a section of the original ribbing with the same flounced edge used on the front. Once the sweater is completely finished, I'll post the entire before and after story.
I just started reading Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience - Steps Toward Enhancing the Quality of Life by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. It's a book best read in small sections so yesterday bounced back and forth between reading and sewing. Not a typical how-to book, it illustrates why if you choose to process experiences differently you will have more positive outcomes and through example motivates in that direction, although that description doesn't really do it justice. When I'm further along I can - hopefully - condense it better. A friend lent it to me. I may need to buy my own copy as it reads like one I'll want to lend.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - my newly sharpened scissors cut like amazing
