me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Becky's Final Construction

I completed knitting the last piece of "Becky" over coffee this morning and after a fortifying breakfast of scotch and milk (soy, of course!) knuckled down to the process of {gulp} finishing.

Does anyone like the process of sewing the pieces together? This is the part I like least, mostly because I feel hugely incompetent. And also because it usually shows. My incompetence, that is.

So, this morning I was looking for a really positive attitude. I decided to go at it very slowly and methodically.

Which is why it is now 11:10 and I haven't finished.

But, I'm setting it aside for now so that I can get myself ready to head out for a baby shower for my very sweet niece, Michelle. She will be receiving the Cabled Baby Sweater and Hat which you can see here.

Okay, here's what I did so far. First, I have all the pieces ready to go, with the right BOOB(that's for you, VK!) part already attached:

Then I attached the left BOOB before turning to the back. I put together the yokes like this:

I was pumped after this part because I think it came out nice and neat!

Then I sewed the back yoke to the back, the front yokes to the respective left and right BOOBS (!!VK!!) and lastly, sewed up the left seam from bottom hem to sleeve hem.

Later, I will sew up the right side and then do some crochet magic around the neck edge.

    Joking aside, I love the color and I think you did a really good job putting the yokes together.

    I can't wait to see what your boobs look like....uh, I mean, I can't wait to see what it looks like on you!
