You’ll excuse the fuzzy picture. Slicing knitwear makes me a bit woozy.
But it all came together beautifully and we now have this:
OK, perhaps I won’t show you. Evidentally that last picture was the end of my free upload quota for WordPress. I finally paid for a FlickrPro account tonight, and now WordPress is having a go. Hmph.
Anyway, I uploaded lots of lovely pictures on Flickr, documenting the steeking process. It went very smoothly. I’d planned the steek with lots of extra sts which became the front facings. I didn’t even need to use bias tape. I did 2 lines of crochet on each side, one to turn the raw edges under, and one to turn the facing under.
As I was doing the line of facing-turning-crochet I started wondering if one could use applied I-cord to do the same thing? It would take longer, but it would look nicer, and it ought to turn the edge just as well. But first I need to learn how to apply I-cord! One thing at a time…
Other updates- Gabriel’s sockies are finished. Sweet sweet little boy that he is, Gabriel wore the first sockie with his regular sock the whole day I was working on #2. How endearing is that?
MS3- Not much progress. Row 58. ooof.
Harry Potter- does anyone else think that R. A. B. is Sirius’s brother?
