Second, we sewed a basting line down the center front stitch of the sweater. I started it to show her how, then Lynda finished the basting.
Since Lynda is the experienced seamstress, she did the machine sewing. She machine stitched up one side of the center stitch and down the other side.
I was visitng my family and my sister had a beautiful sweater that someone had brought her from Scotland. Problem: the sweater was a turtleneck. She does not wear turtlenecks. We examined the sweater with the possibility of making it into a v-neck in mind, but then decided that it would make a lovely zip front cardigan.
It's a Knitted sweatshirt with front pocket. I made it out of Cascade Sierra (50% cotton/50% wool). Based on the Wonderful Wallaby, but with several of my own modifications. I hadn't finished the hood in this picture. It's done now though and very comfortable. As soon as it gets cool again this sweater will get a lot of wear.
