Okay, WIP is gonna be a little different today, because while I'm diligently working and am trying to make progress, I'm still having some tension issues like I mentioned in my last post...
So, who can help me with this??
|WHAT IS UP WITH MY THREAD????|
I've changed needles, thread, tensions, feet, etc... I'm not sure why my thread tension is so tight that it's ruining the thread. I believe it's tight between the first tension disks and where you loop back up to thread the loop that moves up and down when you sew. I know, I know, technical terms. But all machines are different and I just know that every machine I've ever sewn on has tension disks and a loop that goes up and down with the needle.
So, who's got suggestions?
Here's how it's looking overall. If I could get the tension issue worked out, I'd be done. FMQ came back to me easily enough, but my thread keeps breaking when I get in a good rhythm. AAAAHHHHH.
On a happier note, I've also made progress on my mitten(s). I knitted during Emma's dance class this week. There were 4 parents/grandmas in there. One Grandma was crocheting, one Mom was hand-sewing. I was knitting and the lone Dad was on his phone searching the net or something. Poor guy! ;) It did make me laugh though.
So, that's my contribution to WIP Wednesday today. Go over and check out Lee's progress and all the lovely ladies that link up there. And please, offer any suggestion you've got about my tension. Because my machine is causing me tension too!!
