Last evening I spent two hours sewing in the sleeves on the papaya cardi. It didn’t happen with the first try. There was some undoing at times. Next step is to steam those seams while the sweater is still in the two-dimensional stage.
The side seams and sleeves will be easier as the stitches will all be going in the same direction.
There will be more crochet edging along the bottom edge but I think I can handle it.
Finding 1-inch buttons will be a challenge. Should I go with funky buttons? Subdued buttons? Plain buttons? Striped or patterned? Matching? Contrasting? Clear?
Oh, the choices!
