sewing is really knitting.

Why didn’t anyone tell me that sewing in knitting is really knitting with a sewing needle?


So, I feel all fancy. I stitched together the shoulder seems for the hoodie! While doing so, I learned how to make an “Invisible Horizontal Seam” (doesn’t that sound impressive?).

I couldn’t quite master the “Invisible Vertical Seam” however, so the sleeves remain unstitched. I just watched a video on that at, so I feel a little more confident now.

Now let’s see if I can’t get this thing finished and upload a picture of Katie wearing it. Probably doesn’t help that the weather is currently 70 degrees…

    Oh dude, the vertical seam is high up on my list of cool knitting tricks. Once you’ve got it, it’s MAGIC to progress upwards, zipping that seam shut as you go. MAGIC, I tell you.

    (It’s very similar to the horizontal seam – you’re still taking that needle under two bars on each side, it’s just that it’s two bars up rather than two bars over. Does that make sense?)
