Oh my gosh! I'm a lazier knitter than you I think. I wait for someone like you to figure this stuff out and then follow you step by step to do it. I'm bookmarking this post for when I start my thermal.


I am so excited that you blogged about this. I recently endeavored to do the same thing with a sweater. I knit it in the round and attempted my first steeks. I picked up the armhole stitches to knit the sleeve down to the cuff and did short rows to form the sleeve cap. Anyway, I ended up ripping the sleeves, for several reasons,and my sweater will be a vest, but you have encouraged me to try again. Maybe I should find that book.


I just sewed in sleeves on a garment and cursed and moaned the entire time. So, I am going to re-read and re-read this post until I can figure out how this short-row thing works and try that next time.

I am quite the lazy knitter otherwise--all those techniques you mentioned are among my best knitting friends!


Clever! And the sweater looks great! I've done steeking and set-in sleeves, but never picked up around the armholes, and short rows are no fun, I just can't get the wraps to look nice. Yours looks nice, VERY nice!

i must be a lazy knitter too. why seam if you don't have to? ironically that often means more thinking and planning than simply following the pattern as is. *sigh*

the sweater's looking good!

Squeeeee! We're going to the same meeting!





Any chance of your elaborating at some point on the technique you use for the felted clogs? I have made several of these, and really don't like the seaming part. I'm relatively new to knitting, but find I'm pretty good at following instructions. Your knitting always inspires me. It's so inventive - and so very, very neat!
