That is right - Isabella is almost complete - that is all the knitting is done and now it is time to get the sewing needle out to make it official! I just wanted to do a quick post with the news and as soon as it is all sewn up I will make it official with an action shot!
I changed a few things on this pattern - I know the scared girl actually modified a pattern and it worked out perfectly. I didn't like how wide the shoulders were so I fixed that and did a 3-needle bind off (which I am in love with) instead of binding off all the stitches and sewing them all up (much less messy my way).
Hope you like what you see. This is only my second garment for myself. The first being a Bolero by Debbie Bliss. Why is it that for both projects for myself I choose gorgeous patterns with more complicated directions then they needed to be???
More to come when I tie up all those loose strings....
