I Saw the Light…

praise the Lord, I saw the light

  • What is the word for sewing when you have to tear out seams that you messed up?
  • I think it’s “unpick”
  • I’ve unpicked the top of my wedding dress
  • Once
  • Twice
  • THREE DAMN TIMES.
  • I’m an idiot.
  • But now I think it’s back under control
  • Straight is the gate and narrow the way
  • I think the chest baskets are done
  • God help me and the creek don’t rise, I’ll have a wedding dress by June 28th.
  • 21 Days, 2 hours and plus or minus 30 minutes…

Makin’ the Wedding Dress

My yarn came in!

I had to order it as the pattern called for Fine yarn. Which, here go ahead. Get in your car. Drive to as many yarn selling stores as you can. Try to find Fine weight 2. Go ahead…

Actually, don’t. Because you won’t. Or at least I couldn’t find it. I guess worsted (which I think is 4?) is more popular. Or lace (weight 0). That’s about as close as I could get. So I ordered online from Red Heart and paid for 2 day shipping because the wedding isn’t getting any farther away!

I started the skirt portion!

wpid-20140304_195525.jpgdon’t mind the stitch markers. I am terrible at actually counting stitches.

I amĀ  cruising right along, the pattern is working up thankfully quick, but I have a lot to go before June. Say a little prayer for me! I am not going to post the finished dress until I actually get married, so ya’ll gonna have to wait!

Have a good day, everyone!

edit 5/5/2014: the crochet portion is complete! you can view it here!
