Ever had one of those days where thing just seemed to work properly? Where the knitting seemed to be willing to finished off, sewn up, whacked apart and it just cooperated? Be warned – this post is picture heavy.
The hand warmers are complete and went out in the mail to Ms Soprano this afternoon. Definitely would start the thumb extension lower, perhaps just after the first border and have the finger portions go past the DIP joints. In any case, it took the full 25 grams of the navy (why do you think that the tips on the left hand are white) and I had a couple meters left of the white. With shorter cuffs, there would not have been an issue.
after getting back from the mail run I could not resist a couple more rounds.
Viking Ship Sweater
Just what you have been waiting for! Cut down the front
and the armholes measured and cut. Shoulders bound off together (it really helps to check on the outside every once in a while to make sure that they line up. Doing a shoulder over again is a real pain. Trust me.
Of course, then you have these gaping raw edges
which then involves turning the sweater inside out, inserting the sleeve and popping the live stitches through from right side to inside followed by binding them all off.
resulting in this nice sweater with a sleeve –
with only the second sleeve and the front bands to go
Finished up Promise in Death – J D Robb and started Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews.
