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 🙂

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!

  1. Yay! Sounds like you’re in the home stretch all around. I do love that stitch pattern on your Sawyer!

    1. Thanks! I love the look and the stitch but man this one has challenged me but that’s also a good thing 🙂

  2. woohhoooo!!! Sawyer is coming to a close and it looks fab-ooo!!! Great job, so far D!!!! 🙂 And the kitchen it seems will be back in working order, just in time for Thanksgiving cooking! 🙂 Wowoohhooooo!!!

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

    1. 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…

      1. 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.
