isabella is almost completely seamed. i took such care with finishing her… in fact, i’ve never been so careful in finishing a handknit before.
i beautifully matress stitched the left side seam.
i tried 6 different ways of finishing the shoulder seam, to finally settle on grafting them, even though the stitches are bound off, seaming the right side and the left side.
i mattress stitched the right seam to see, that oh crap. i have NO idea how but the right front side up to the arm hole is about 1″ longer than the right back side up to the armhole. it’s also 1″ longer than the left front and the left back. WTF? seriously?
it’s been put aside for now until i can figure out if i’m going to ungraft the shoulder seam and reknit the entire right front or if i’m over it and will just mattress stitch somewhat lumpily and get them to be the same length come hell or high water.
it might be the latter.
