Hemming and Hawing

My Box-the-Compass sweater is underway. The cleverly constructed contrasting hem is behind me and now I have miles of plain black stockinette ahead of me. I'm finding it very soothing right now. I'll let you know when I'm ready to poke myself in the eye with a knitting needle.

The hem was enormously satisfying to work. What a wonderful detail. I chose the knit together as you go option seen here and how to'd here, rather than the add on at the end and sew up option. I'm pleased with my results.


As always, thanks to everyone who leaves me such nice comments. I do love comments, and I would reply to each and every one, but often cannot because I have no way to reach you. Blogger doesn't provide me with commenter's email addresses. Feel free to email me (my email address is available in my profile) if you want to hear back from me.

That is very cool. I am too tired to understand it right now, but I love the way it looks.

Love the hem. I didn't know about the 90% thing, that explains some belled out hems I made on a hat.
