I'll admit to you all that my finishing on the Very Necessary Sweater isn't my best work. I don't know what's happening. Maybe it's the slightly nubbly Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran? Maybe it's that I'm seaming too close to the edge (poor planning meant that I didn't build in another selvage stitch (I usually like to have my seams placed between the first and second rows).
My raglan lines are especially uneven.
I don't know what to do about this. It's a result of the uneven edge stitches. I'm hoping that one will be so dazzled by the entire sweater that the slightly (okay, very) wonky raglan lines won't be noticed.
While seaming, I realized that the next time that I knit this sweater, I'm doing it in the round. Knitting it in pieces meant that I had a very portable project throughout the knitting phase, but for a sweater this nice, I think that it'll be worth the sacrifice of toting around a giant knitting bag on the train.
Meanwhile, my knitting challenges aside, put your hands together for fellow Knitsmith Gabriella whose Clessidra knee socks are in the latest edition of Knitty. Way to go Gabriella! Love it when a fellow Knitsmith does good!
