I met my goal and finished seaming the Harmony sweater last weekend. I'm very happy with the finished results. I've had such a phobia regarding seaming, which led to major avoidance of a lot of great sweater patterns. I can now say, I'm no longer afraid. One thing I did not realize is that it takes so long. I figured an hour or 2, wrong.
Pattern Stats and observations:
Harmony Cardigan Pattern from Trendsetter Yarns
12 skeins Trendsetter Harmony Yarn
Size 10 addis.
The pattern was straight forward, however, there are no schematics on the pattern. When I was ready to block, I guess-timated what I thought would work. It worked out, but since it was my first time, I was unsure the whole time it was blocking.Thankfully I read Marie Grace's post on blocking and setting in sleeves the day before, what a confidence booster!
There is no finishing on the neckline so I added a slip stitched crochet edging to finish it off. The biggest problem..they totally overestimated the amt of yardage needed. I had 4 EXTRA skeins left ( actually 6, when I bought the pattern I thought about knitting a bigger size). Now I routinely buy at least 1 extra skein, but 4...I've already returned the extras.
Up next, Gathered pullover.
