Some Assembly Required

September 9, 2012 at 8:40 pm 8 comments

The parts are almost complete.


Only a bit of a sleeve cap to go.

If this weekend was only a couple hours longer, I might have been able to swing it.
But as it stands, it will probably be cast off tomorrow at lunch.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that I’m done.
Not even close.

Next comes the blocking, and seaming.

Here’s a quick dry run on the assembly-


Then there is the button band/collar.
And finally, sewing on the button and a nice little tag in the collar.

But it still feels pretty good to have all the pieces (almost) done.
Pretty, pretty good.

      thanks Michelle- if you can dream it, you can do it! the hard part about it for me is staying focused on one project for so long!

      thanks Keith! my only tips: spin long-draw, knit continental, and avoid housework as much as possible 🙂
