The Gilmore Vest is back from the frog pond! After miscalculations, errors in judgement, and some troublesome directions it landed in time out despite what I might have though in August 2009. And as I began to knit on it again I wondered why I continue to persevere on a knit that is riddled with woes.
What you see below is a perfectly graphed shoulder seam. On a arm hole which is too small. I graphed before seaming the sides because finishing up the front and back of this knit without any hiccups was to too good to be true, and I was right.
Having trouble seeing anything in that picture? Here, this shouldn't clear anything up.
The front may look a little funny, because I plan on steeking. I am much more knowledgeable about steeking now. I took a class and have five, count them, five stitches added to cut into for my neckline. For some reason, I am staying positive about this knit. I've already ripped back and corrected this issue.
Next up, I am seaming the sides and cutting the steek to pickup stitches for the neckline. Don't worry I plan on videoing that progress!
Today it's snowing and we got the Christmas tree up with little tyke today. Maybe I'll be up for it on tomorrow's snow day?
