Probably still Friday in some parts of the world, so this still qualifies as FO Friday 🙂.
My Tortoise and the Hare top is finally finished, that is, save for some ends to weave in. I was just lucky to have enough light grey yarn to complete the sleeves, and was very happy I didn’t have to buy more.
I made my sleeves 3/4 length (winged it basically) instead of short sleeves in the hope of wearing it in anticipation of a cool Spring. And then the weather turned 😔.
It was still daylight when I got home from work, so persuaded my photographer to take some pictures. So, here’s “bring and brag”.
The skirt is another me-made one I self drafted using corduroy fabric from myfabrics.co.uk.
I’m really happy I made all the adjustments though it made the process much longer.
The weather folks have predicted cooler weather so I just might be able to wear this beauty soon 🤞.
One thing I’ll try next time for a top knitted in the round is shoulder shaping, or just knitting back and forth at that point, because I don’t quite like the bulk at both shoulders where I lightly sewed down the cut steeks.
Have you tried shoulder shaping in the round or do you knit back and forth at that point?
Have a great weekend.
