I seamed the shoulders of Harald’s sweater today. I was a little put out with myself because I had forgotten to keep my stitches live during shoulder shaping so I could use the three-needle bind-off method. I rationalized myself out of ripping back by telling myself this knit is drapey and a little heavy (due to accidentally knitting on size 9 instead of size 8 needles) and the seams would give it more structure. That probably isn’t true but my seams turned out nice.
I fell back into mattress stitching as if I did it every day instead of once every few years.
When you really love something I guess it is like riding a bike. You never forget!
I have been trying to find more knitting blogs to read by looking at the knitting hashtag in my wordpress reader. Do you have favorite knitting blogs? Will you share them with me?
One thought on “Seaming Sweaters”
I think you were right about the seaming. When worn the three needle bind off can look stiff and bulky.
I use the WordPress search to find knitting blogs and when I find ones I like I follow them.
