That said, anyone have any hints for seaming this pup? I need to seam the shoulders, then knit the neckline and then attach ribbon to hold the little part on to the big part, then sew the seams. The other ribbon top I made required only shoulder seams. I don't know whether to use the ribbon yarn I have or just find some thin white yarn. Thoughts?
And while the original pattern had sleeves, I'm skipping because 1. they'd be a pain to set in and 2. I like sleeveless tops and 3. oh yeah, I didn't buy enough ribbon yarn for two sleeves. And I bought it from Elann.com, and they're out of it now. C'est la vie.
I have been jonesing to do some fair isle...why? why? I have no idea. But I have. And I"m scared to death to steek....please don't tell me it isn't a big deal, it is CUTTING into your GARMENT that you KNIT with your HANDS. Anyway. So I started on a pair of fair isle mittens. We'll see how that goes. Stay tuned.
