I don't know anything about putting pieces together, so at this point I avoid it at all costs. Maybe this time to my peril. I did have to attach the shoulders. I worked the top from bottom up (as per instructions), but I did it in the round to avoid side piecing. Maybe that is why I have a twist? I'll have to do some reading to see if anyone else has had this sort of problem.
Otherwise it is a lovely top!
Note: 8/14/07 I Love this top. It has a wonderful drape, is cool even in the most hot and humid weather! And yes the twist does bug me a bit, but I have gotten used to it, since I just love to wear this all the time. I think now that the twist is due to knitting in the round as well as the fact that I knit so very tightly. I am working on that though.
And here I finished a quicky. I used some bulky tweed I got on sale to make a birthday gift for a friend. Her birthday is in October, so good timing. But I love the sweater and will have a hard time parting with it! I did a basic top down circular raglan pattern, but incorporated a broken rib neck, waist and wrist, as well as a cable (my first) down the sleeves. I love it!
And now for my new project. My girls need a basic cardigan and I love this pattern. Of course I am changing the colors and converting it to a top down raglan circular pattern. Then I will steek the front and knit the button rib. Ooh more experiments! I love it.
And lastly I have been working on a sweater for my mother. No photos yet, but soon. This one will take me a while, but that is OK she won't need it till fall.
