I Want to Knit
Thursday, November 15, 2007
fo report: baby cabled cardigan
Amazing thing, how time works. It hit me yesterday that Jakob is growing up. He'll be 6 months old on Saturday. Already! And while he is getting bigger...knitting doesn't. Especially knitting that remains unfinished in a Ziploc bag hidden away in the basement. And if I wanted Jakob to wear said knitting, I'd have to get a wee bit of a move on in finishing it.

So while Jakob did this
I turned this
into this.
The sweater had been sitting in a bag just waiting for the ends to be woven in and the zipper sewn in. To be honest, I rushed it. I realized AFTER sewing in all the ends that I think I'd left them unwoven last time because I wasn't happy with how I'd seamed the sleeves on, but I hadn't time to fix it then. Now it is too late, and I can only hope it doesn't look as strange or boxy on Jakob. Not my best work, but at this point it will fit him for a few weeks and then get washed and packed away, so I'll forgive myself.
I'm really happy with the zipper! It took a long time because I wanted it to be done properly (this was BEFORE I realized the problem with the wonky sleeves). First I pinned it then basted it in place. I sewed the selvage stitch down to the edge of the zipper, then used a small backstitch to sew down the other inside edge of the zipper so it wouldn't catch on anything.

I'll try to get some photos of Jakob in the sweater for my next post.
