The La Plata crew met Saturday for our final fit and finish class. I am proud of the progress and dedication of both groups in this class. For some, it was the first sweater they'd ever knit. For others, it was the first sweater they'd ever knit that actually fit them! Either way, it's a testament to how empowering it is to know how to make the changes you need for your own figure and garment preferences. We spent this class learning the proper order for sweater construction, how to sew seams each type of seam needed, and how to perfectly set in a sleeve.
I took a photo of everyone's sleeve with the cable trim to show how very different each one looked in the various fibers. Here's Tere's in the Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed
and here's Ellen D's in Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran. Ellen used a double strand of Artyarns Silk Rhapsody Glitter for the cuff. Isn't it gorgous! If only you could feel it.
I did mine in Kochoron. You can see it hereon my knitting blog.
