I finished the Baby Bobbi Bear sweater last night after work.
Originally, I was going drop stitches along the edges, re-knit them, and trim and weave in the ends of every row... but I didn't do that. To my work-addled brain, that seemed like too much work. So I chopped an inch off either end and wove the ends in (photo to right). That made this tidy edge you see on the left. Then I picked up the stitches along the edge and knitted the button flap. I crocheted a loop for the button.
Perhaps this wasn't the most logical way to go (I don't even know what to call it) but it was fairly effective. I like the points on the sweater, it gives it visual interest. I'm not entirely happy with the button placement; I imagined it centered, but with the sweater style I ended with it wasn't possible without the button practically hanging off the edge, and I didn't want to just have a frog or toggle. Live and learn.
What a mess that would be!
Last night, I:
- had miso soup and vegan cheese and crackers for dinner
- watched Best of Show
- finally chose my Knitting Olympics project
