… that struck fear into my heart recently:
“Join right shoulder seam.”
I know that my fear of seaming is completely irrational — it’s not that difficult, rarely takes as long as I think it will and usually ends well — but for some reason, it’s still the number one reason why it takes me so long to finish any project that needs it.
Feeling a little guilty about the amount of knitting that I’ve been doing for me whilst Steven’s argyle jumper has been languishing unfinished, I decided this week that I was just going to have to be brave and get on with it. I got out my trusty Vogue Knitting, followed their instructions for an “invisible horizontal” seam and tah-dah!
I know it doesn’t exactly look “invisible” but trust me, that’s a really neat seam.
Having successfully conquered the seam, I ploughed on and knitted the neckband.
Next up are the armbands and then:
Join left shoulder seam and neckband seam.
Join side seams with mattress stitch.
It’s taken 3½ weeks to get past “Join right shoulder seam”, any bets on how long it will take me to build up the courage to attempt that little section?
