Cont even on 13 sts each side until neckbands, when slightly stretched, meet at center of back. BO. Sew shoulder seams. Sew sides of neckbands to neckline. Sew bound-off edges of neckbands tog at back of neck.
Acckk! I think I have to email Melissa Leapman. To me, these instructions sound like I'm making a halter but the pictures and schematic do not show that. I am particularly confused by the directions to sew the sides of the neckbands to the neckline. What the *%$&? Time to start the socks!!
I so appreciate everyone's very nice comments about the garden and fountain. I read over the post later and was embarrassed that the yard photo showed some of our untidy tasks. The great expanse of dirt is supposed to be a rock garden island in the very near future, if it will ever stop raining. I also have plans to surround the AC unit with a wrought iron screen that will support either potted plants or a climbing vine.
The most pressing thing on my mind lately is my job. I must have a much lower tolerance for stress than most people. Either that or I have a different sense of what's acceptable and what's crap. The shortcutting that goes on, the hurried ambivalence, the fear of speaking up, the bureacracy, the scapegoating...all make me crave a simpler life and a simpler set of values. It's time for a change. The problem is, will I recognize the opportunity when it presents itself to me?
