We we last saw our heroine, she was mired deep in the frog pond. Fast forward to today and she has not only climbed out, but is now skating along effortlessly.
As exhibit A, I give you the miracle of top-down, set-in sleeves. My finger is on the shoulder, running left to right is the seam where sleeve meets the front - it's hardly visible. This is the first time I've tried them and, I must say, I'm loving them. They look perfect -- I can only hope they fit as well! [The garter stitch is the frogged/re-knit collar.]
I used Paula Ward's video tutorial from easyknittingdesign.com. Very clear and easy to follow.
