Last night, the Coatigan got its button/buttonhole bands. Tonight, it got its collar.
I wove in a few ends, but I think I’m done for today. I do have this to look forward to though…
Yup, a metric craptonne of ends. And the cuffs yet to add.
I did finish this yesterday though.
The blues are a bit deeper in real life. It’s a pretty shade of James C Brett Marble Chunky, though I don’t have the label to hand right now. The buttons were bought on clearance at work. This is destined for one of my co-workers in my aim to give each one of them a random gift for no reason.
Tomorrow my goal will be to get the cuffs finished on the coat, and I may also start another small project, if I find the inspiration. I will also need to persevere on my piano practice. I have three tunes to practice – This Land is Your Land, We Wish you a Merry Christmas, and Silent Night. Eight weeks in and it is getting more challenging. I was getting quite frustrated with myself this morning, trying to get the hands coordinated. Considering I learned to type with all my fingers, both hands, when I was 16, I know I can do this piano thing, it just takes practice. What’s challenging you right now?
Good luck with the piano! It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. 😉
The jacket is gorgeous.
Look at you go!! Gorgeous jacket and hat AND learning to play the piano. Fantastic!! Piano gets easier if you don’t worry about perfection and just enjoy the song. Play what you love and then it will always be a joy:). Good luck on your adventures!
Thank you. Learning to play the piano is something I’ve wanted to do for years. Finally doing it!
Thank you Tracy. Have a wonderful day!
