I know I hate ‘sewing up’. There is nothing about seams or blanket stitch that appeals to be on any level. And yet I still chose a pattern that required every seam sewn. The knitting itself was fine (it’s a gift for a colleague who is having a baby), and then the pleasure turned to pain when ‘finishing’ involved sewing up the seams. It took a ridiculously long time to do, I am bad at it and all in all I am less thrilled with the end result – mainly because the sewing up is ‘shoddy’. Sigh… there is a lesson here in sticking to your strengths! There is also a lesson in finally getting some ‘lessons’ in sewing up properly!
