Midsommer / Midsummer
Dagen har ellers bragt et øjebliks rædsel, der nok fik energien til at strømme gennem kroppen! Nevøens sweater er nået så langt, at ryggen faktisk er færdig. Der mangler bare lige det øverste af foran. Den er jo bestilt ret lang, og jeg havde kigget på diverse herre-opskrifter og længder og var slemt bange for, at den var for lang. Faktisk var jeg efterhånden sikker på, at der skulle ca. 8 cm af.
I dag i kirken skulle jeg så måle på ham. Den så virkelig lang ud! Overbevist om, at der skulle trevles op, hev jeg rundpinden ud og målte igen. Så var den perfekt!
SÅ trådte rædslen ind! Heldigvis blev de allerfleste maske samlet godt op, og de sidste, der ikke blev, kan rettes på den første pind.......
Nu ved jeg da, at den kommer til at passe!
Tonight it is Sct. Hans night. Since the weather is very unreliable with a lot of showers, it will be very interesting to see how many bonfires will be lit tonight...... After a Saturday filled with activities and with me coming home very late at night, I don't have a lot of plans for this evening. Maybe I'll go to Tivoli? Maybe Frederiksberg Gardens? If the sky looks too gray, I'll definitely stay at home!
Today came with its moment of terror that really got the energy flowing through my body! The sweater for my nephew has come so far that the back is done. I just need to make the top of the front. Measuring one of his other sweaters gave the information that it should be quite long. I had been looking at a lot of male sweater-patterns and I was really afraid it was too long. Actually, I was quite convinced that I needed to unravel at least 3 inches! Today at church, I wanted to measure it on him. It looked horribly long! Convinced that I needed to re-do something, I pulled out the needle and measured again. Now it was perfect!
At that moment, terror hit me! Fortunately, most of the stitches were back on the needle without too much difficulty, and the last stitches can be corrected on the next row......
But at least I know it will fit him!
