April showers bring May flowers so the true colors are not quite shown in the photos below due to the snowy/rainy and cloudy days we’re experiencing this week.
I need to find my bamboo double-pointed needles as these metal ones are very slippery and the stitches fall off the ends. Of course, I could use more than four needles with fewer stitches on the needles.
Picot hem – though I did not cut the green yarn yet. Just in case I don’t like it, I can rip it out and try something else without worrying about having too much or too little yarn to work with. I really hope blocking will keep the bottom edge from curling. If not, I’ll need to come up with another plan.
If you have been following me for some time, you know I don’t like to sew seams. However, seams do add structure. So I made fake seams by doing a reverse stockinette stitch at the center underarm point all the way down to the hem.
It looks like a seam and will (hopefully) keep the sweater from twisting out of shape. Have you ever used that technique? More importantly – does it work?
