Have you ever done something appallingly stupid, and you stop yourself to say, “What was I thinking?!”
Then have you ever continued to do exactly what you were doing, only to get the same results?
Yeah, I was perhaps overly aggressive in my attempts to stretch the bind-off of this sweater while blocking. “It’s wool and silk,” I figured, “that should totally stretch!” Ha. Hahaha.
The first time I snapped the thread, I thought it was a fluke. Easily fixable, though, I’d just sew the bind-off in that spot, good as new. But then I continued tugging at the bind-off (why, Vicki, whyyyyy???) and snapped it on the collar as well.
There is a lot of careful mending in my future, shoot.
