Progress??

Lady...step away from the sewing machine!

I'm really tired of telling myself that so...

I DID IT...well, this much anyway!

Next~~

Now I need to be able to pick up my scissors without my hand shaking like Barney Fife holding his pistol!

I'm not the only one having issues...

Momma, I can't watch!

I want to Thank You all for your kind words...please keep that positive energy going!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

I know it's hard, but just pick it up and do it! Or better yet, get someone to do it, because then it will be done. If I'm near you, I would come over and rescue you.

Opal said...

You can do it! I know you can! I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and your family.

Diana said...

Oh my!! Scary indeed. You'll be my teacher when I get around to that technique!

JustApril said...

Letting the scissors rest there and warm up is a good idea. I'm proud of you! Of course, since you have the sewing done, the rest is gonna be fine. =)) (she says... knowing she's scared to think doing it herself)

mari said...

Ack! I would be so scared.
Good luck! And can't wait to see it when it is all finished.

Kat said...

AACCKKKK! I am shaking here for you.... but you are a fearless knitter!!! Cut on!

Mindy said...

Take a shot of whatever gives you courage. You can do it!

Becky said...

I wish I could help, but the thought of steeking leaves me shaking in my boots. I'll be thinking of you.

Margaret said...

I suggest having a cocktail. After the cutting, not before!

chanknits said...

Good luck. I'm scared for you, but I know you can do it!!

Dana said...

Barney Fife and his pistol. Robin, I laughed out loud when I read that analogy. I cannot imagine taking scissors to my knitting so I wish you the very best of luck. Do have a cocktail, like Margaret wrote (a little beforehand) and a monstrous one afterwards.

Bobbi said...

Looks like you sweat off half a pound just thinking about steeking! Wish I could be there to talk you down from the ledge.

KnitNana said...

Be a FEARLESS KNITTER (since I know you are!)
You can do it.
I've got Landon in my prayers...
(((hugs)))

Karen said...

Oh, Robin! I love the Barney comment and I was rolling with laughter!!! I know you can do it, keep on going - SO anxious to see pictures of your success. :)

Miss Me said...

post pictures once it's over... too scary to watch! the knitted fabric looks GORGEOUS, btw.

Sue said...

Ew... just thinking about cutting that beautiful knitting is making me hyper-ventilate... O.K., just be calm and relaxed and GO FOR IT!
So, did ya?
