Too much info plus an acutal question
Hello Everyone,

My chronic fatigue of unknown origin is the worst it's ever been.
I am actually taking diet pills to help me at least be a little productive.
I accidently found out that ginger root (pills) that I use for motion sickness
help with the body aches and pains the diet pills give me. I can't be on
the pills forever but it's kind of nice to wash the dishes for now...

When I have bad fatigue, I have what I call brain fog as well. I just can't
organize my thoughts at all. (I do have ADD)

Anyway, I think I know this but can't sift through the fog enough -
You know when you see a sweater, for example. where the knitted pieces
are sewn and there's this pretty V shaped seam going from the arm to the
shoulder/neck area? What is that sewing technique called?

All my seaming always looks horrid and I just saw a pix of a sweater like that and I thought yeah! thats what a seam should look like!

I think you're referring to raglan shaping. The sweater is either knit in one piece that way, or is knit in pieces and mattress stitched together.

I'm sorry you're not well.
