But I digress, so back to the sweater update. I’ve finished the skirt portion for the back of the Seacolors Jumper. You can just see a hint of the purple that I am using for the picot hem. I sewed down the hem yesterday. My two favorite bits of finishing are sewing picot hems and the three needle bind off. I dread all other finishing. Kitchnering toes isn’t bad, but since I knit socks toe-up I rarely kitchener.
I’m also going to use purple for the neck and arm edging but not sure how. More picot? Crochet? (The pattern calls for rolled stockinette, but that is right out.) And I’m thinking about throwing in a thin stripe or two at the waist. (Will it look awkward and cut me in half, or look fetching and highlight the shaping?)
I’ve already cast on and completed the hem for side 2. I made significant changes to how the short rows were knit that I wanted to do the other side before I forget what I did.
(Yeah, I’m going to try NaNoBloMo this year. Maybe that will get me back in to the bloggy swing of things.)
