Well I never did get those borders onto my quilt — tomorrow’s project I think. But I did finish off the sleeve for my sweater and I did just finish setting in the sleeve cap area of both sleeves. I kept telling myself I had to wait to eat dinner until I had both those sleeves sewn in — and I did — and it’s 8 p.m. and I’m hungry! (Okay – I did have popcorn midafternoon while watching a movie so I’m not that hungry). But my turkey sandwich is calling.
This evening I hope to get the neck band put on which is a little trickey because there are small gathers that go into the picking up of stitches on the neckband since the sweater is supposed to have a few drapey gathers there. Hopefully I can get it to look right and I chose yarn with enough drape to it.
Notice the red clips — those quilt binding clips are perfect for lining up knitwear pieces while you are sewing them together.
