Beadwork Is Finished!
I worked Beadwork top down, FLAK style. in the round, but not steeked. Since the twisted crosses are the same as worked on Am Kamin.
This sweater is bulletproof, and will join the FLAK from last year(June 26) as the winter coat, since I hate coats and tend to use a sweater for that purpose.
If I were to do this again I would add more cables to the sleeves since that is the place that I bogged down, more than any other.
Once I got past the sleeves the rows of body took 1 hour for every 2 rows, and after 4 rows I would lose focus so 6 rows a day were the most I accomplished.
I am glad that I have finished it was a long job, and I am just as glad to have it over. It took longer than Am Kamin (Sept. 13), because I hated knitting the sleeves, and the rows took longer, (Am Kamin was worked in pieces) so I
felt that I was not accomplishing anything.
Any way it is done and I have grand children's sweaters, Trip Trap, and The Cuff to Cuff based
loosely on Sue Essers pattern to finish so that will take care of the rest of the year, surely.
Now to look for knitting for the new year.
