I don't know everything....


So I found out recently that I don't know everything; of course this is really disturbing and I had to call on my knitting pal, Sandy to help me out!

I have mentioned before that I am working up the Flower Child, by Norah Gaughan, Vol. 4 and am using the Classic Elite, Soft Linen yarn and I may have even mentioned that there was some sewing involved. Weellllll, there is and this doesn't scare me off, because I know everything (?) NOT!! I did my version of the mattress stitch to sew up the sections for the front and the back; boy was I proud, but wait, I brought it in to show Sandy and she gently informed me that I needed to look up seaming. Hmmm, out comes my Vogue Knitting, The Ultimate Knitting Book and with a little coaching from Sandy I am now on the right track. Boy I tell all of you that a good reference book is essential and I need to take my own advice and remember to open my book once and a while! Imagaine what I might learn :)

Phew, that was a close call! Then I remembered that Laura had done a fantastic video on Sewing Together Two Stockinette Seams.

Wow, what a fantastic resource I have at my disposal! I just wanted to share this with you because I believe in always being humble about my abilities, so I will be open to improving them.

Thanks Sandy, Vogue Knitting and Laura for your great instructions. Learn something new today and you will know it forever!

Happy Knitting! Jeanne

PS The sweater is almost sewn together and I will have it up for your all to see soon!
