- yippee! Still need to decide on a closure but I keep forgetting
to look at buttons when I am at the shop.
bag of Tiur from Bea
Ellis to make a Dale sweater but after letting it age nicely
:-) decided I wanted to design a sweater using the weaving patterns
in Joyce William's book Latvian Dreams. Saw her at Stitches West
2003 wearing the most wonderful sweater from that book...got my
Designer to get the numbers. Will knit one tube for the body
and a second tube of the same size to cut in half for the sleeves
)because at the time I didn't want to fuss with all the deceasing.)
Cut the neckline out of the finished tube. All cut edges are covered
on size 3.5 mm. for the body - just found a large flower type motif
for the yoke in an old Peer Gynt pamphlet. It fits evenly into my
stitch number - yippee!
- the arm seam was machine sewn after I cut the tube apart so the
center section of the arm has no decreases - I did all the decreasing
in the green area above the cuffs. Cuffs have a rolled edge because
I like the way it stretches.
Note to self
- it was DAYS of work to sew all those bands down even though I
like the look of the picot edge - I just had to keep poking myself
with a stick to keep sewing night after night.
