Not going to work today — I took today and tomorrow off. Woo-hoo!
I did some Ingeborging over the weekend. I finished the first sleeve.
I measured the top of the sleeve, so I could mark the depth of the armholes on the body. I sewed all the steeks.
Here’s a close-up of the front neck steek.
And here it is cut open.
I picked up the stitches and started knitting the neckband.
I will complete the front bands before I start the second sleeve, I think. There’s a lace edging that is knit separately and sewed around the neck, cuffs, and bottom of the sweater. I may knit that and sew it in before I do the last sleeve — I’ll see how I feel when I get to it.
I do like the idea of having everything completed and when I finish the second sleeve, I can just sew it in the armhole and be done with the whole thing.
Lucy and I have a special guest coming to stay with us tonight. As you can see, Lucy is primping in preparation!
