While The Mister played in the kitchen this weekend I tackled the items in my bin of shame.
First Lofoten got her sleeves steeked.
The sleeves are knit together in the round and then steeked apart. Yes, it's as crazy as it sounds but it's done.
Now I have to weave in all those ends and sew the cuff linings down before I can sew those sleeves in. Don't ask me why you need a cuff lining. I think the designer way overthought this sweater. There are a lot of steps I wish I had skipped.
Also in the bin of shame is Tracery. I finally got the sleeves bound off together using an inside out 3 needle bind off. I still have to pick up and knit all those miles of bands but I am determined to get it and Lofoten out of the bin of shame before actual spring-which to me is always March 21.
