Baby Update Part II

Just a clarification...not my baby. My friend's baby...now a full week overdue, and growing by the hour!

As for more baby knits...the Katja top is finished! I decided to sew it together with an overlap of about an inch, otherwise it would have been too wide through the body. I went to Debbie Stoller's Stitch 'N Bitch book as a reference and modified her mattress stitch to accommodate assembling something with both stocking and garter stitch, as well as allowing for the overlap.


Amazing how it's almost seamless!

Detailing - outside seam

Detailing - inside seam with overlap

Promise of a modeled photo to come!

Message to Myself:

See - finishing things isn't difficult. This took less than an hour to assemble, and now two of four (five, really) projects are finished. You just need to decide to do it already. Now get on to your tank top while it's still summer!

Will you be wearing your golden tank tomorrow evening? If so, bring a sweater!

I always wondered how to knit garter stitch & stockinette stitch together . . .
