Holli Yeoh, techniques

One Down

Yikes! I forgot to post this one!  It’s been sitting around waiting to be published for over a week. 

Last night (Sep. 27) I finished up the pink Ruby I’ve been working on.

Pink Ruby

Project Stats:
Yarn: Opal Petticoat 1295 and Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Ultra 3-Ply Fingering Weight Yarn in Thistleflower
Pattern: Ruby (my own)

My plan was to show you how I sew the sleeve in, but upon writing the step by step, realised it makes a lot more sense to talk about mattress stitch first.  I have another project coming up soon that I can photograph as I seam it together.  Then I’ll show you my hybrid mattress stitch/grafting that I use for sewing row selvages to stitch selvages.

In the meantime my pink Ruby went on her merry way to Salt Spring Island to have a great time at Lucy Neatby’s Adventure Knitting camp without me.  Hopefully she sold a few patterns and kits for me.
