Well, here's one I haven't seen before...

I wasn't going to post about Bristow until tomorrow. I started seaming today, and was going to post a beautiful post-seaming photo and be all proud of myself.

Things were going well. I attached the left front shoulder and then seamed the left side. Look how pretty and curvy:

The seaming is in the horizontal strip in the middle, and you can see the curves from the waist shaping.

Then I attached the right shoulder and seamed the right side. It was going beautifully. I wove in the end of the yarn I was seaming with, and started to try the vest-like sweater on. But something was... wrong:



I'm always careful to not twist when I join circular knitting in the round. I never thought to fret about this. I'm sure it didn't help that I was watching very shameful but nostalgic TV while seaming. (It's not my fault if TiVo decides I need to relive early adolescence by recording episodes of 90210. I can't help but watch! But to my credit, I don't think I've gotten more than 45 minutes into any episode I've started. The credits are really the best part.)

It's not a disaster. In the first split second I noticed the problem, I was convinced that I'd have to undo the whole side seam. But obviously it's quicker to just redo the shoulder seam.

Now time for ice cream.

Bristow is turning out really pretty, even with that little extra ... um, twist. Love the color.

Tee. Hee. Hee.

I knew you weren't a perfect knitter! (Maybe it's karma for being so mean to your poor widdle sock!)

Are you sure ice cream will help? Maybe something a bit stronger?
