Left Sleeve/Front Finished!



I had my doubts - I thought I would have to frog...the sleeve looked way too long.

But I pinned the seam and pulled it on and surprisingly it is perfect! :)

Can you see the shaping on the front?



I didn't knit in the hems...I don't mind the sewing (I know - I'm a freak ;)) and certainly didn't want to mess with knitting the hem on the curve.

Casting on the Right Sleeve/Front tonight....

WOW!! It's beautiful, Veronica!

You mean you knited some edge stitches instead of the hems? It looks nice. a lovely idea!

Which stitches did you work on the edges? garter stitches?

OOoooh, looks great!! And I'm so glad to hear it fits perfectly. I guess we're all a bit paraniod about the fit. :) I've been knitting in my hems, but very leery about the front curve hem too. I may go with you and sew that one!!

Snappy! I'm curious about the seaming on those curves.

Koko - I just followed the pattern. I didn't change it at all.
