I finally put on my big girl pants and sewed up Helena's hem! It's allllmost done.
I referenced this article on TECHknitting about how to sew hems shut. And by "referenced," I mean CLUNG TO FOR DEAR LIFE, keeping the page open on the computer, on my lap, while I sewed, like some great virtual security blanket. The last illustration (not picture) in the post was invaluable for an overly literal person like me!
To celebrate, I cast on Rose Red, just in time to wrap up Jardin January. It's very impressive, no? ;)
