Still working on Addie’s jack-0-lantern sweater. One sleeve is done. One more sleeve to go and then I’ll sew the pieces together. I wanted to thank everyone for all the kind words about my intarsia. It really isn’t very good . . not horrible, but not great. I watched a couple of videos last night and I’ll do better the next time. I had watched several videos before but it didn’t all sink in til after having tried it. I probably should have practiced on something before doing it on a sweater but . . you know how I am . . jump in with all I’ve got!
So . . Addie will love it and not know it’s not great and I’m happy I did it and I’ll love seeing her wear it and that’s what matters, right?
One more thing . . notice the cables in the neckline on both pieces? This is where the pattern instructs to put the neck stitches on holders. When using interchangeable needles, most have caps that can be screwed onto the ends so instead of putting the stitches on a holder or waste yarn, I just left them on the cables, put the end caps on and then when it’s time to pick up those stitches, I’ll put the points back on the cables and be good to go.
Being able to do this makes those interchangeables useful in another way!
