>I only have the neckband left to knit for the jumper but I won’t be doing it. Instead I’ll be pulling the lot out and re-knitting it into something else.
Having sewn it all up yesterday I have decided it’s just not right. The tuck stitch band around the bottom is way too bulky and it would just annoy me too much.
I also did a terrible job at sewing up the hem as you can see in the photo, there’s a line all the way round.
What’s annoying is that I didn’t sew it up with the Hague linker so it will take ages to unpick the seams. I did the side and sleeve seams in mattress stitch so they’ll come apart easily but I backstitched the armhole and shoulder seams.
Never mind, back to the drawing board.
Talk to you later,
