Very Necessary Seams

I'm hoping to finish seaming up this silliness, block it and have some F.O. shots by the end of the weekend. I was hoping to finish it on Sunday, the first day of snow, but it has been a challenge to get all of the lines to match up nicely. On Saturday, I seamed up the side and then took one look at the wonky, mismatched lines before totally ripping it back out. The seaming instructions are like none I have ever followed before. I am picking up and knitting all along both sides and then grafting them together. That is a whole lotta grafting and a really big pain to rip out! After getting back to where I started on Saturday, it needed to stay in timeout on Sunday. I've been chipping at it with a different strategy since then and so far things are lining up properly. At this point, Paul thinks I have just made him a really strange poncho.


  1. At this point, you have. OK sorry, that was mean. Good luck with the seaming: I KNOW you can do it.

  2. His face is priceless! OK, I gotta admit you are one brave woman to try to knit a sweater for your husband! I know you can pull it together, but the question is whether Paul will wear it when it is done! Good Luck! Love, Mom

  3. I like the photo because I can see some of your apartment. It looks like it's coming together nicely. I like the plant in the sink (at least I think that's what that is). I'm still uninspired to hang anything on my walls. I need something new and I'm still trying to figure out what... We'll see. Good luck with the sweater, can't wait to see it finished!
