Timber Frame – 3

03-timber-cutout.gifGuess what this is?

Yup. I did it. I cut into my Timber Frame vest. This is the cut out of the first arm hole. I haven’t picked up the stitches of the second one nor the neck yet. That’s tomorrow. I hope to have this finished either tomorrow or Wednesday.

Why the delay? I’m not happy with the neck that I’ve outline stitched. I think the neck opening might be too small. I might turn it into a short “V” neck instead. Here’s a picture of the sweater with the templates pinned in.

Yes, the armholes were a bit pointy, but I fixed that when I stitched it. I found it quite difficult to do curves on the sewing machine with the knitted fabric. I suppose that will come with some practice.
