|so...first, i got cocky with tivoli. i was meticulous. i counted. i thought, you see, follow the instructions closely, place markers, no problem. i do all the increases, i do the raglan sleeve shaping, i am binding off and casting on for the armholes. i realize that i have taken out my markers, as suggested, and have managed to fuck up the number of stitches or something and made the armholes uneven and lopsided. i was able to...rip out...cringe...those rows and....cringe..reknit them, but managed to bung up the raglan stitches that are at the armhole. i am unsure how to fix this, due to the increased stitches and all that crazy stuff, so i am going to leave well enough alone and go from there. the neck and armholes are even now, and hopefully no one who didn't write the pattern or knit it will notice. even thinking about it, i want to rip it out, but i may never finish it them , the rows are loooong and my attention span is short. i may make another after this one, now that i know what i am doing. this is the first adult item of clothing i have made with any sort of sleeve...and knit in the round. and everyone knows how poor lelah came out. it didn't.|
next, i had a consultation to fix permanent eyebrows for someone. it was blue, lopsided, uneven, had a double line...i can't express how bad it was. and the woman haggled with me. she thought i was too expensive. i told her that i could fix it, but i charge what i charge. it is her face. it has already been fucked up fairly badly. i would be really really upset it my eyebrows looked like that. and she had eyeliner that had turned blue as well and was done really poorly. it made her eyes look droopy. i won't say more. it was super super super bad. it will be a good before and after if she comes back. she is going to be a pain in the ass if she does come back. she told me it cost 100 bucks less at the other place. that screwed her up. good deal. sigh.
i am going to nurse my headache with some diet cherry vanilla dr pepper. later dahlings.
