Hope to Finish Friday!

Can we call this finishing Friday or will it jinx me?  I’ve never been good at finishing.  (Really?  That’s why I knit so many socks) 

I went really slowly last night, and had a glass of Skinny Girl (margerita) and took some deep breaths.  Usually knitting soothes me, but finishing makes me hold my breath.  I can ruin weeks of knit love with a bad finish.  And I have. 

The shoulders were a three needle bind off.  No problem.

The sides were a slip stitch crochet join.  Thank you Darlene Marquart for a straight forward easy easy pattern to knit.   Drop-Shoulder Tee.  

Today I do the sleeve bands and the neck band.  Tips for me?  Oh and I’ll do them in Purple which was not my original plan.  

I’m not giving failure any power!

  1. You CAN do it! I really like the 3 needle bind-off. It looks so neat and is so easy too. The finishing can be the most knuckle biting part of knitting a sweater isn’t it? Have fun!
