Sweater is Almost Done

The sweater is just about done.

From top to bottom in the picture, the sleeves, the two fronts and the back. I only pressed the piece edges with an iron and damp cloth so they would be easier to sew. Here's a picture of just the back.

I'm going to work on the belt while the pieces dry completely, then sew it together and do the button-band (something I've never done before). That's assuming the pieces all fit together like they should. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Have I ever mentioned how much I don't like sewing my knitting together? And that's not even taking into account all those loose ends besides the sewing. *SIGH*

More pictures and specs on the project when it is completely done.

Holy gorgeousness!! Your sweater pieces look SO beautiful!! I can't wait to see it all sewn up. I'm not a fan of seaming or weaving in loose ends, either, but looking at something that beautiful would sure give me incentive to do it! Take care! :-)

Wow, it sure looks like they should go together well! How lovely. You can do it! You can do it! You can do it!

If a sweater looks that good blocking in pieces, it is going to make a wonderfully stunning garmet!

Keeping fingers crossed, as you mentioned: I hate sewing pieces together because there always is that annoying half-centimeter that seems off. You finished this one pretty quickly, didn't you? It looks lovely, really lovely.

It looks super!

You are brave to sew all that stuff together- I always try to knit in the round if I can (I still fear set-in sleeves)

Wow ... they are beautiful. And I know that you are really brave too ... not using denim yarns for denim pattern! Wish you all the luck with the Finishing Fairy! ;)

That's a beautiful sweater, even if you do have to put it together. I hate finishing, too.

Wow, it looks incredible. I never fear assembly...probably because my learning curve was on other people's pieces! LOL I can't wait to see it really is beautiful.

That is a great sweater! I know what you mean about the sewing. I knit in the round whenever I can.
