liking the like sleeves
It's always a good feeling to get another knitting project off those needles. Not that the Like Sleeves was the type of project that dragged along. No, it knitted up very quickly thanks to the larger needle size. The only stalling was my inability to sit down and try to understand the instructions for the last few rows.
But I did get my head around it. I even managed my first (rather awkward) crochet chain stitch which is woven through the neckline.
I used a Moda Vera wool in what I think is the perfect shade for Autumn. I'm thinking this will be quite a versatile top for the changing weather. Alone on a warmer day, or worn like a vest over long sleeves when it's cool. Very transeasonal.
I discovered that I don't like seaming very much. And I'm not terribly good at it either. I'm afraid that I totally messed up the shoulder seam. But I'm turning a blind eye to that and we will learn for next time.
She does seem to like it.
