C'mon. You knew there had to be a pun one of these days :-).
As reported in yesterday's post, last night was the final session in Circles finishing workshop series. Believe me, it was well worth the $25.
No more fudging! Do you see the color of the seaming yarn? It's purple. Do you see the color of the stockinette? It's blue. In spite of that, you can't see the seam; it's truly invisible.
Lest you think that seaming vertical stockinette was all that we did, I'm also skilled with seaming horizontal to vertical stockinette (as in sleeves to a sweater body), reverse stockinette seaming, and attaching garter-stitch pieces (in all directions). I just don't want to bore you with picture after picture of, yup, you guessed it, beautiful seams.
Finishing no longer seems (ahem) the daunting task it once was, and that's such a relief to me.
Thank you Allison for taking the stress out of finishing!
I think that I can confidently say:
(Thanks Moon Arts!)
In other news, a catalogue from Herrschners somehow wended its way into my mailbox recently. I was idly flipping through it last night and holy cow! Most of the time mail-order yarn is not my thing (you can't feel the yarn before buying, and it's bad for your LYS) but I haven't been able to find a particular colorway of this yarn in sufficient quantities at my usual local yarn haunts.
Whoops! Looks like someone is growing a stash. This means that I'd better get back to my knitting.
