Tomorrow I should be able to post a full FO report but even so close to the finish there are still things to say...
I'll leave commenting on the fit on me until tomorrow but the way the pieces fit together really is the stuff of the assembly story.
I know many people knit so as to avoid assembly and finishing altogether. In fact several of the sweaters I've happily made in the past year and a half fall into such a category but I have to admit I quite appreciate the effect and shaping that's possible when pieces are knit separately and seamed, sleeves are shaped and set in and blocking is done in advance of finishing. It lends a different quality to the garment that when I put it on, makes me feel good for having made the additional effort.
Thanks for dropping by!
*"Rowing Out" results when one row is knit at a different tension than the other - apparently its most notable in Stockinette.
