And so it goes with the finishing…

I think it must have been so overwhelming laying out all my UFOs that I haven’t been able to post! But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on them. So I’ll try to show you what I’ve been doing.

I sewed the shoulder and collar seams and finished the body of Mermaid with the applied i-cord around the front lapels. The i-cord turned out to be quite pleasant. Here’s what she looks like:

I had a long plane trip, so I started on the sleeve. And then I spent the afternoon at the Boston Knit Out and Crochet Too! working on it more. I love the sleeve cap shaping:

The weather wasn’t the greatest for knitting outdoors. It sprinkled a little and was very humid. Sometimes the sun beat down, sometimes there was a bit of a breeze. I won a hat pattern as a door prize and one of the sponsors was giving away a small skein of red Manos cotton. I competed in both the fastest knitter and fastest crocheter contests, coming in 2 stitches behind the winners in each. And as I sat in the audience knitting on Mermaid, I held it up during the Show and Tell and a number of people came over to ask for the pattern.

Just a few more rows on this sleeve, and I can start the second.

More former UFOs tomorrow.
