Seamless

I love seamless knits.


There is nothing quite as satisfying as finishing the knitting and just...putting it on. No piecing, no fitting, no sewing. Especially no sewing.

It doesn't get you out of blocking, of course, which is why these are still not modeled shots. When I finished knitting Morgaine this afternoon, I gave her a nice bath and then hung her on Bertha to dry. (That's what constitutes blocking around here.) As I expected and planned, she has grown significantly in length, and I think she'll fit perfectly once she's dry.

I have some pretty ceramic buttons I've been saving for a while which I think will work well on this. I just need to sew them on and make a few button loops, and this one will be an FO.

Come on, Fall!

Yes, I'm also all for seamless knits. I love the hood. It all looks so soft and warm! You're ready for the cold season.

It's beautiful! And that's a brilliant want to increase its length!

Classy. What is the yarn?

Have I mentioned lately that, in spite of my decluttering, I wish I had a Bertha?

That is great! I love hoodies. I never actually wear the hood, but I like knowing that it's there...
