Ingrid, the sweater looks beautiful. Great job!
My sewing saga------many years ago I was sewing a summer dress and having great difficulty putting in the zipper. I broke two needles. The second time I just put in a new needle and kept sewing. The phone rang--I ran to answer it----stepped on the broken needle---the rest is history. I had to have surgery to remove the ##*#ing needle. I spent 3 days in the hospital and 3 weeks on crutches. Now, many years later, I still break out in a cold sweat and my foot throbs whenever I walk past a sewing machine.
You try telling people that you had a sewing machine needle in your foot!!!
