Progresso: Day 4

Well, unfortunately it's either too cold in my apartment and the battery of my camera is too cold to produce power, or the batteries in my camera are actually worn out. Either way, while I got a shot of my progress today, I can't connect m my camera to the computer to upload it.

The progress, however, is this: I'm done with the back. I'm actually currently afraid that I didn't pick a sufficiently complex project to keep me busy for the allotted 2 weeks. Perhaps blocking will give me a run for my money, for I have yet to learn how to block things. The ribbing only recently started to annoy me. I have a lot more of it to go though, so I'll have to be careful with that. All this being said, I think it's time to start the first sleeve!

What about seaming? That's loads of fun and time-consuming too. Have you seamed before? I just learned last weekend. The only thing left on the sweater is weaving in ends, sewing over the collar and somehow shrinking the whole thing (magically) by 1/4 of its size so it can actually fit erich :)
Congrats on finishing the back! So there were no problems with what the pattern told you to do near the armholes?

No problems!! I think that's because Melanie Falick was nowhere to be seen!

I haven't seemed before, or blocked, so this should be interesting, and now that you're mentioning it, i didn't factor in time for either of those into my pipeline...good thing i'm ahead!
