Is it just me, or does it seem to you too that I've been blogging about the Seaglass Shell forever? I guess that's because I've been *planning* on making it for a long time before I actually started, and then I had a false start and had to go back, and then I had to figure out a thing or two as I was making changes... Well, guess what?! I can see the light at the end of this tunnel because my front panels are done!
They are not sewn in yet, but I can just see that it is all going to look pretty good. That's a relief because the shape of those panels was pretty tricky to figure out: increases on one end and short rows on the other, all the while maintaining lace pattern... Yeah... So I'm glad they wroked out. I just hope it won't be too bulky in the center where the panels overlap. You know I'll let you know :) (btw, the big picture is the closest in color to the real thing)
Here's what's left:
- sew in the front lace panels
- sew shoulder seems
- pick up and knit around armholes
- weave in all ends
- put away for next summer (booo! - that's the worst part: after all this time, I won't even get to wear it this year :( Unless we get lucky and get at least one beautiful summery day this Indian Fall)
