Sweater Emerging

July 12, 2014
Shoulders joined and neck opened.

A few nerve wracking techniques result in a more sweater-like garment.

Later, I’ve machine sewn the steeks to fasten them off and cut the wrapped ones to open the neck. I also joined the shoulders. I’ve started picking up around the neck, but that photo will be for another day. Have charted a motif design for the neck, my design. It’s untried, of course, so I’m hoping it works. I always use a bright, contrasting color of thread for machining the steeks. It’s orange but not very visible in the small photo.

Machining and cutting steeks kind of makes the blood pressure soar. No matter how many times I do it, it still gives me the creeps. The sweaters hold together, though. I’ve got several Norwegian sweaters around here, worn by various family members, and none have ever come apart. This one is going to an adult son.
