Stitching Status: Sawyer Seaming

20151120_071320
Last night was my last Sweater Study at Fibre Space and I learned how to seam my Sawyer (I also bought some more yarn for a possible Christmas project…I cannot resist that place). I still have to finish the cap of the other sleeve and block it but I successfully added a sleeve, seamed the shoulders and one side.

Oh and when I’ve seamed all these lovely pieces THEN I can pick up stitches and knit the collar and create the button bands. It’s almost finished, I’m so close I can taste it!

And this stitch pattern, although lovely, has been a challenge at times. I just keep repeating to myself that it will be really lovely when it’s all finished. I made my husband try it on with the one sleeve still not seamed and he looked at me like I was a crazy woman but I wanted to make sure that it fit him. Because if it didn’t fit after all of this work I was pretty sure I was going to lose it. It fits and I can see the finish line to FO, maybe by Monday I’ll have a completed piece to model by my husband πŸ™‚

On an exciting note, we are down to the backsplash in the kitchen. WOOHOO! The end is almost near. I’ve already cooked a pot of chili so the kitchen is functional but I haven’t moved it all back in and set it up since I knew we still had backsplash left to add. Progress all around!

Have a good weekend!

  3. Good on you! Your cooker looks lovely, and I can just get a glimpse of the countertops, matching the backsplash… Very cool.

    • What’s the name of the stitch pattern? It looks like a lovely texture to run one’s fingers over… Not that one ever needs an excuse to run one’s fingers over one’s husband…

      • LOL. They call it the thermal stitch and it’s basically a knit one, knit one below stitch that alternates and has a purl row in between. I really like how it looks.
