not ready to go back to pagan yet. it was like this with the rio top. i had to put it aside for a few days and let it marinate before i was able to successfully pick up stitches to my liking. no worries though. it will be done this week. in the meantime, i'm perusing my pattern collection for the next project (or two). i've pulled out a dozen patterns that i want to start some time in the near future. i already started one. Looby Lou's rib shell. she made it in ASC, and (of course) i'm substituting Cotton Ease that I have left over from my daughter's sweater from long ago.
