Seams and Finishing

 Good morning,

I'm making great progress on the custom order basket weave sweater.  Yesterday I finished matching each row and crocheting seams together.  After that I still  had to do all finishing of weaving in ends, sewing in my label, and adding a "hand made" charm.

It's a long process to design and hand knit a sweater, but the rewards are great!  I made a similar one for myself in navy blue more than 15 years ago and I'm still wearing it.  Perhaps it's time to make another for myself, too.

 As soon as I finish this sweater, I'll be back to work on the custom order afghan blanket I started recently.  I move back and forth between knit and crochet projects to give my hands and fingers a rest from the same repetitive movements.  It works!
