I seamed the shoulders on Maddy's sweater late yesterday and set in the sleeves last night.
It has been established that "finishing" is not my favorite part of the process. And it's not just knitting. I was talking with my sister Karen last night and she was quick to bring up all the cross stitch pieces that I've stitched but left unfinished. (Gee, thanks Karen, for bringing all that up!) I've been told (by my mother) that I'm a lot like my grandmother (her mother) in that way, so at least I come by it honestly. Heh. Anyway, there are some procedures in the process of finishing that slay me with their simple beauty and magic. Seaming with mattress stitch is one. It serves as motivation, too, so I'm off to do the other...
