Weeping & Sewing

Okay -- it wasn't that bad. But I don't know why I thought I would be able to sew the pieces of this sweater together in an afternoon. The whole thing took about 5 hours, with short breaks for dinner and putting a kick plate on our front door.

Ms. Starmore's instructions say to backstitch the seams. I'd never backstitched, but I thought I'd give it a try. Suffice to say I switched to mattress stitch.

So far, I've got the sleeves and shoulder saddles attached to the front and back, but I haven't sewn the side seams nor sewn the sleeves together. That will have to wait for another day. But the end is in sight! More sewing pictures in the Flickr links on the right.
