This is going to be fun. Well, not this. This is about to get picked out. But then I’m going to do it again more carefully, and I think that will be fun.⁠

You see, I have a sweater with a neckline that’s a bit lower than I like. And it would be the perfect sweater if only the neckline were just an inch or two higher.⁠ So I’m going to fix it.⁠

I started by putting it on and experimenting with a pin and a mirror to figure out where I wanted the neckline to fall. And it turns out that if the bottom two inches or so of the neckline are closed up, it will be perfect. ⁠

Now, I don’t think I can sew it up in an invisible way, so why not go the other direction and make it cute. This works, but I’ll be able to sew it more evenly if I get it in an embroidery hoop, so that’s what I’m going to do next.⁠

(Someone’s going to ask, so alas no, I have absolutely no idea what the thing I’m doing here is called. I was just fiddling around and it’s what happened, sorry.)
