Left front went off without a major hitch and pretty fast, given that pretty much all I’m doing is knitting on this.
Er, except that I forgot to put in the pocket. I really wanted pockets. So, this is what I’m thinking: steeks.
It’s ok, you can resume breathing now. I haven’t done anything yet and I might decide that this is an outer layer that doesn’t need pockets. Ha, who am I kidding? I will pass up something I truly love if it doesn’t have pockets on it. I’m going to practice on those seven swatches that I made. My CPH is made with 100% wool, so it has some good “stickiness” to it unlike superwash. It shouldn’t be too hard… right? I mean, knitters have been steeking for hundreds of years. I figure I’ll decide where I want the pockets once I do up the shoulders and side seams, sew down the right columns, snip, cry, pick up stitches, and bam! Pockets.
I can hear you laughing at me, don’t think I can’t!
(I’m still working on the lever-style knitting videos. The tripod-behind-my-shoulder plan does not seem to be working very well. I think that I will need to trick someone into manning the camera for me.)
