Please don't jinx me

So, I'm keeping good on my promise to self-cheer. I went home last night, anxiety in hand, and sat down to work on this beast of a BT project. I almost don't want to say it, for fear of jinxing myself and turning out a mishapen product, but it is actually coming along ok.

Let me define, "ok". There is only one piece that I may have to remake, the "hard" part, as proclaimed by the pattern, is finished (and it wasn't too bad) and I haven't thrown anything. So, all that being said, the only thing left to do is take all the sewn pieces and assemble them into the final product. Of course, there's another "hard" part in the assembly instructions, but I'm hoping it will pass as successfully as the last "hard" part.

Status of project:
  • All pieces have been sewn
  • 0 pieces have been assembled
  • Confidence is above average

Wish me luck.


  1. One thing I learned when I was first learning to sew from patterns was that swearing is perfectly acceptable along the way. It's very cathartic and it keeps you from having to patch holes in the drywall where you threw your scissors. or iron. or whatever random heavy item was at hand. Just take your time and it'll all come out right.

  2. Heee heee! I love that your partner is leaving you hints on your web site. ;) And this entry cracks me up.

    Have I told you the status of my BT project? Um, yeah. I purchased the pattern two weeks ago on eBay and have yet to receive the sucker.

  3. Love the Kite Runner. It is the best book I've read this year hands down.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
