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 🙂
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!
