Here is a little CPH completion teaser. No I am not done yet, but by the end of this weekend I will be. Tonight after work I had settled down with my oh-so-fantastic OTT-Lite and needle to start the seaming on my sweater. I took my sister's advice and used the Mattress Stitch to seam the hood and sleeves. As you can see here in the picture, I managed to finish up the hood completely and seam one sleeve into a tube in preparation for attaching it to the body.
I must say that I am an individual that dreads seaming anything. BUT, after doing the little bit I had to tonight, I am beginning to think it's not as bad anymore. I question, is it because I am a more experienced knitter than the last time I knitted a sweater? Is it that my sister gave me some great tips on how to do this? Is it that I did it in the best light possible with total peace and quiet? I don't know, but I sure do hope that I feel this way about seaming after I get those sleeves attached to this baby!
My plans are to seam the other sleeve into a tube tomorrow and if I have time before I get totally exhausted at the end of my day, I will try and attach the sleeves. If not tomorrow, then Saturday will be the day. I am hoping to have some pictures of me modeling CPH on Sunday. We shall see. I am anxious to finish!
