You all knew I was going to rip out the hemming on the jacket back and re-do it, right? Miss OCD . . . leave it not quite right . . . I don't think so. First thing this morning I took it out, wove waste thread to mark the line better, and knitted the hem into my bind off. It was a major PITA. I did a few stitches at a time . . . . stoppped and checked it . . . . took a break . . . did a few more stitches . . . and so on and so on. A long long time later . . .
All done, lightly blocked, and modeling on the Spare Room bed!!!
It may have taken me four tries . . . but look how straight and even the top hem ended up!!!
I am having so much fun knitting this sweater. I'll start on the left sleeve tonight or tomorrow . . . I can't wait to see how that shapes up!! As I knit this, I keep thinking of the only other sweater I've knit. I don't even wear that poor thing. It's weird and lumpy and doesn't quite fit right. But that makes me realize what a long way I've come since last year.
I know my blog has been down (Blogger problems with a filer that has my blog on it), but I'm hoping I can get this uploaded before the end of St. Patrick's Day!!! I wanted to share the little leprechauns that visit my coffee table and side table during March!!
If you look close, you can see the removable stitch markers in the top left shamrock!! I guess the leprechauns like to knit too!!!! HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!!
