Definitely making good use of lazy minutes on this trip to make progress on the Refined Raglan. I decided to do the sleeve hems before attaching them to the yoke, so as to avoid having to turn the entire garment as I knit them. I used EZ’s technique for hemming this time, instead of knitting the hem in as I did for the bottom hem. You pick up stitches in the cast on row (right in the purl bumps – very slick) and knit a hem in a lighter weight yarn and smaller needle. I went from Aran weight yarn and a number 6 to DK weight and a number 5. A much better result – note how the bottom absolutely insists on flipping up – maybe this could be a design element? – but the sleeve hems look great on both the inside and the outside.
A quiet day here in WV today, then tomorrow we head to Marietta to have lunch with Patty, Tim, Ken (I hope) and Eloise. That means more knitting time in the car.
