finished sweater


When you mattress stitch a seam, the seam should be invisible. Having run out of blue yarn entirely, and having instead completed the side and sleeve seams with contrast colour yarn, I am relieved to confirm that is true. The sweater is done, seamed, ends woven in and buttons attached. Last night I gave it another Eucalan bath to relax the seams a bit and now it's laying flat on the spare bed to dry.

There's still enough Lopi yarn left for two more sweaters, and possibly some hats and mitts, but I think I'm Lopi-ed out at the moment. Time to take a break and knit something completely different. Something small, quick and fun, I think. But what?
