Oy vey. I have started this project over again more times than I’d like to admit. Very frustrating. However, my procrastination on this project + my willingness to frog everything and begin again multiple has produced a more satisfying product with each iteration. I’m finally at a point where I feel confident that this is it (which is good, because a) the premiere is fast approaching, and b) I seriously need to return to Christmas knits).
It’s not 100% finished, but I have the underarm loop taken care of and kitchener’ed together; all that’s left is to finish the piece that will flap over my right shoulder as shown in the movie still below.
I am not a huge fan of the kitchener-ing on the shoulder seam (I have never been able to not make my stitches look anything other than sad, twisted and definitely not invisible), and I’m thinking about redoing it with another invisible seam stitch – does anyone have any suggestions? It also needs a good washing so it can even out a bit. But hooray for progress!
