On the finish line...

This morning I went to visit with some other knitters,
and realized that finishing a sweater like this
was something they had never done.
So I thought I would try to show how.
They seamed terrified that I actually had to clip an opening for the sleeves.
Unfortunately I had already clipped the openings a few days ago,
so I couldn't take a picture of it.
However, below I show how I attached the sleeves,
right sides together, from the inside of the sleeve,
after sewing with first a straight stitch, and then a "zig zag" stitch,
before I clipped!


I had already knitted an edge on the sleeve,
that will not show from the right side,
but function as a hem to hide the raw edge of where I clipped.
Sew the hem whit a wip stitch, make sure it doesn't show from the right side.


This is how it look on the right side after its attached.


The last thing I have to finish it the ribbed edge around the neck.
It will be done tonight!


Jeg var sammen med noen "strikkedamer" i dag,
og fant ut at de ikke kjente til hvordan man monterer en genser.

At den maatte klippes opp for armehull, skremte dem...

Derfor tenkte jeg at jeg kunne legge inn noen bilder av siste fase.


Her er mine "damer", de som holder meg med selskap hver dag!

This brings back memories - to when I first cut up a sweater in front of people. The "horror" in their faces! :-)
Great sweater! Beautiful dogs!

Genseren ble kjempefin!

Jeg synes også det er skummelt å klippe i det jeg har strikket.... så det gjør min mamma.

Genseren din ble flott. Et lite tips. Når du syr i ermene så gjør det fra retten. Da får du en fin overgang mellom arm og bol!
