Ms. Knits: A sleeve and a collar

Thursday, October 13

A sleeve and a collar

Pictures of my first ever set in sleeve!

The sleeve fit into the body perfectly, and seaming it was - dare I say - fun! Here's a close-up of the seam. Believe it or not, this is my first ever seam... the other tops and felted bags I've knit have been in the round with no seaming.

And I finally finished the not-so-fun part of Frieda - the 9.5" ribbed collar. After trying it on, I think I could have gotten away with knitting it slightly shorter, but it's fine at this length. I used the knit two/purl two sewn bindoff from the Vogue book (I think this is the same as a tubular bindoff, but not sure). I started out doing the bindoff a little loosely, so the back doesn't look quite as neat as the front. I was trying to make sure that the collar would fit over my head! :)

Tonight - setting in the second sleeve and sewing the side seams, hopefully.
