I really don’t like seaming. To the point where I knitted the body of my cardigan all together, so I didn’t need to seam the sides. Why I didn’t do the sleeves in the round I will never know…
But I also couldn’t knit this blanket all in one piece, there are just too many colours going on. So it had to be seamed. *sigh*. I also couldn’t figure out what colour to use- it would show when darning in, and I didn’t want to drag that much yarn all the way down if I was using the mattress stitch. So I figured I’d try the crochet method, which I love!
Same idea as the mattress stitch, but using a crochet hook, rather than a darning needle. For some reason I find it so much easier, and I think it looks pretty neat too 🙂
I still have to finish knitting the last stripe (which I’m massively procrastinating over because it really doesn’t seem to have been designed with knitters in mind- I’m very tempted to knit it plain and duplicate stitch over it, it’s that bad). And then finish darning in the ends, and do all the embroidery. And then block it- and I guess washing it would be a good idea, but I’m not sure that I trust the washing machine, even though it’s acrylic!
But I think most of the letters are obvious- which ones can you guess? Any ones you don’t have a clue about?
