SLEEVES FINAL NOTES
The two sleeves are done, and on the blocking board.


Don't extend the blocking wires into the side edges of the cuffs or you could stretch them out when you spread the wires for the body of the sleeves. I want my cuffs to remain as snug as possible.




My final notebook page for the sleeves:

TWO NOTEBOOK PAGES FOR FINAL FINISHING
I will begin with step one of final finishing today: Sewing the shoulder seams, using mattress stitch. Will probably get hood done by tonight. The ribbing will take concentrated efforts however, and so I won't do that when I'm tired or frazzled. Picking up just the right number of stitches for the ribbing is very tricky, and important to have them evenly spaced within sections, and not too few and not too many. Otherwise you will get wonky ribbing bands! Ack! What could be worse?

PAGE ONE


PAGE TWO: I am modifying the ribbing application. You can read
all about it below.

As always,thanks for sharing all your professional tips... they are greatly appreciated...I was reading your advice on blocking and wondered how you achieved that edge stitch to poke the blocking wire through.. did you slip the stitch? thanks for helping me understand..

An "edge stitch" is created by "knitting" the first and last stitch of every row, both WS's and RS's.

There are diff ways to create an edge stitch I guess (from Googling the words), but I learned the edge stitch from Elsebeth Lavold, the Swedish "Viking Knits" designer.

I used to put a stitch marker 1 stitch in from each end to remind me to "K" the stitch, coming and going!

It really makes for easier mattress seaming, and of course, blocking with wires!

Thanks for your kind words and compliments!

Will you be joining us for this Central Park Hoodie?
It's very easy, and an adorable hooded jacket, I think, don't you?

Hi Artlady - I'm posting this for reassurance..

So I'm on my 'left front panel' and I'm done with the 7" required for the armhole length and put the 10 stitches on scrap yarn. I am about to start the BO for the neck shaping.

The directions say "keeping in patt, BO 2 sts at neck edge every other row 3 times - 24 sts remain."

If I read your previous post correctly, I'm to slip the first stitch w/out knitting, then knit a stitch, then BO then knit and do the 2nd BO... right?

I like this hoodie a lot. Where can I get the pattern? I cannot access the blog in your link from this network and the issue of the magazine that it was in is not available for backorder. I want to make this when I have a little more practice.

It's on Interweave's Pattern Store site. The direct link is:

http://shop.interweave.com/Central-P...e-P204C53.aspx

If you click on that above and it won't let you go there from your network, you can go to www.interweaveknits.com, then click on the link on top that says 'Pattern Store' and then the Central Park Hoodie is a featured best seller on that page. If it doesn't show up as a best seller, you can type in 'Central Park Hoodie' in the search box on the top left.

Yes, that's what I do! It produces a smoother edge, no lump.
