I started knitting this sweater on February 19, the plan being that it would be a versatile addition to my spring wardrobe. I don't remember how long it took it took me to knit, but let's just say the individual pieces have been sitting in my closet for, uh...a while.
For the love of yarn, people, next time I’m tempted to knit something that has to be sewn together, STOP ME. I know I hate seaming, I know I’m not good at it, I know my projects could be finished so much faster if I didn’t procrastinate the seaming part ("spring" ≠ August). And yet, once I’ve finally finished, it’s like I have amnesia and eventually I get lured into making something else that’s designed to be knit in pieces.
The bad news: sewing the seams on a lace garment is even more difficult than on other garments, and I didn't do a great job.
The good news: the lace pattern does a pretty good job of hiding my crappy seaming. Oh, and more to the point, IT'S DONE.
I do think I'll get a lot of wear out of this eventually, but right now it's 102 degrees, so...probably not soon. Loyal mannequin Epiphany is graciously modeling it in the meantime. True, she has nothing to fill out the sleeves, but she's never let her lack of arms get in the way of her modeling career.
