Friday morning, after I slept in as late as my body would let me, I decided to pull out my Ott-Lite and seam up the shoulders and sleeves of the sweater. While I could have attached the sleeves to the body, I chose not to. I just didn't feel all that ambitous to seam those tiny sleeves to the body.
Then by sometime on Saturday, can't really remember the time of day whether it was morning or night, I tackled the picking up of collar stitches. 58 stitches wasn't all that bad right? Well it only took me two tries to get it the way I liked it. While the collar is complete in this picture, you obviously see I didn't tackle those sleeves yet.
So what else could I do but get on with attaching the sleeves? Hehe I decided to go ahead and knock the hat out. I casted-on for the hat on Saturday night and by mid Sunday morning I complete up through the leaf lace pattern. Just have a few more rows to do and then I guess I will not be able to put off the sleeves any longer.
Hope to have a picture of a completed ensemble soon!
