Reindeer Sweater with cut and sew neckline

Well, the reindeer sweater is now complete1 It was hardwork but well worth the effort. Knitted in Forsell's Pure New Wool 4 ply Superwash. I did a cut and sew neckline using my own template and the Hague Linker, really pleased with how it turned out.

Here are some photos:

That's all for now everyone. If I dont get round to posting again before Christmas, then I hope everybody has a great Christmas!

Happy knitting!

Cut and Sew!!!

Ok ive come out of my knitting room for the evening! Calming my nerves after i cut the neckline in the fairisle sweater I am making. This is my first attempt at cut and sew so im pretty nervous. I'm doing it using the Hague Linker and using Diane Bennett's instructional DVD for the method.

It looks hideous at the moment but Im sure when the neckbands on it will be like a swan on water... beautiful above the water but frantic below! Basicly it needs to look nice on the outside but it can be as messy as it likes on the inside where you cant see!

I will post a pic of the finished sweater ASAP

Thanks for reading

Thought I would upload some photos of what I have been knitting lately on the 700.

Two tops, one a keyhole vest and the other a drop shoulder sweater, both knitted in Yeoman's Panama 4 ply (Lovely yarn to work with!)

I used some of the first colour to trim around the vest's ribs, just to add some detail. I think they turned out pretty well!

That's all for now!
