I just sewed one ofPosted: March 21, 2005
I just sewed one of the side seams of the Klaralund! I followed the seaming instructions in Stitch N Bitch and it wasn’t as horrible as I thought it would be! The instructions are pretty good. My seam is definitely not perfect — I think I pulled the yarn tighter at some points, but overall I’m satisfied with it. I’m just thrilled that I learned how to do this! =)
How are you supposed to end the mattress stitch? I couldn’t find the instructions for that so I sort of tacked the yarn the way I did at the beginning. Is there a better way?
Hopefully I’ll have time to sew the other side seam tomorrow. The two sleeves are now on the blocking board. Not quite sure when I’ll have time to seam the sleeves to the body. I think that will be harder for me so it might have to wait until I have a chunk of time over the weekend.
I am sooooo happy to announce that the Cloud Poncho is finally off the needles!!! Woooooo hooooooooo!! I finished it last night and weaved in the ends today. Once I get more blocking pins I will block and seam it. I’ll post a picture once it’s done.
For the first time since I started knitting at Thanksgiving, I have absolutely nothing on the needles. Very strange!
