loose ends

When I think of handcrafted baby wear, I always picture some white-haired woman rocking back in a spindly wooden chair, working the needles to the shape of some sock or sweater or relatively garment-looking object. But my own projects have shown me that knitting patterns are a lot like sewing patterns - only you're shaping the parts instead of cutting them out of a larger piece of fabric. Right now I'm in that mess of a phase, staring down at a handful of mangled swatches of navy and cursing the non-knitting steps of knitting a jacket.
