I think I can. I think I can.
And ready to rock 🙂
So this morning I started in on sewing it up.
First I did a little research online on preferred techniques.
Then I worked up some courage and set out to sew the first shoulder seam.
I think it turned out pretty well. But it wasn’t as straightforward as expected.
I mean, I get the grafting idea.
But somehow the purls really threw me.
The shoulder edge stitches were purls.
Once I finally got it figured out, I probably should have gone on and done the other shoulder seam, but I was anxious to give the sleeve a try.
Here’s the setup-
Now the sleeve is an interesting challenge.
It’s part graft, part mattress stitch, sometimes at the same time.
Each stitch is a judgement call, because you’re working on a curve.
Then I found that taking a picture of a should seam is almost as hard as sewing it.
But I guess if you can’t really see it, then it’s good, right?
Shadow is now half-sleeved!
That’s where I left it today.
So far so good.
