With the Thanksgiving meal over and James back on the train to Toronto this morning, I've begun to tackle the makeover of "Downton". Sometimes after wearing a new sweater for a while I decide that I want to make changes/improvements. It's never easy to make the first snip on a completed garment, but I'm motivated by wanting the work done before Rhinebeck next weekend. In good morning light and with patience, I carefully snipped (yikes!)and ripped until the I-cord border was removed and the live collar stitches were back on a needle.
Really, it's not so drastic as it all looks. The blocked stitches aren't about to go anywhere in a hurry. Now, back to work to make the changes. Can't wait to show off the results.
