WORLD Famous Bair Isle Sweater!
THANKS ListMom Sheila!!!
|As you can see,
I couldn't force myself to do the patterns on the sleeves...and found
out my fairisle tension was waaaaay off working on DPs for the sleeves...was
also reminded that I don't like small projects...you find the next
color, "get" or is it "grok" the pattern and in
two seconds you are at the end of the row and have to do it all over
again, unlike an adult sweater where you can motor around three hundred
stitches before you have to think :-)
|This is the
first time I have done facings...folded one steek out and stitched
it down separately...folded one steek IN and hid it inside the facing...much
better. I never pre-sew my steeks before cutting and this time I didn't
sew down my sleeve steeks...after all, this is the perfect project
to practice on...they held up fine through a vigorous washing!
