So another day has passed and the website is almost up. There really is just one more thing to do. How exciting! I’ll be sure update this blog when I have the go ahead from my web guy.
I realize I have been talking a lot about the site and not much about the other crafty things in my life.
Every Monday I knit with a lovely group of women at Ingebretsen’s. One of the knitters has been working on a Scandinavian ski sweater for a year or more. She finally blocked the pieces and is ready for the construction part. I’ve never seen the process of steeking before. This week she will pull out the sewing machine and scissors and attack this.
Two beautiful sleeves – actually the same size (the camera distorted them a bit) will be sewn into this body.
She’s already marked the arm holes with white yarn. Those will be stitched up then cut and then the sleeves will be sewn in. Then the same process of locking the stitches, cutting and then sewing will happen around the collar.
I’ll be sure to post a finished picture when it’s all finished! I can’t wait to try this. I’m thinking I’d like to start on a smaller sweater (read child size) and work my way up to a cardigan (for me!). The ladies at Ingebretsen’s are inspiring, especially when it comes to color work!
