Getting closer to the inevitable cutting of steeks.
The Fair Isle on the sleeves was much more tricky than the body. Especially the little green parts. I redid the green crosses three times on one sleeve before arriving at something akin to reasonable tension. Its due to the DPNs I think. Irregularities in tension cleared up with blocking.
One sleeve I steam-blocked and the other I wet-blocked. Can you tell the difference?
P.S. In real life, they are in fact the same color.
Here's a bit of the reverse side of the Fair Isle.
Now, the next step is to work up the nerve to send this through the sewing machine.
