Yay, I got the baby cardi done! All sewed and blocked, just missing buttons, which can wait - I am going to announce it Ready anyway.
For some reason I was unable to make decent photos of it - this is the best one, if you can believe.
This cardi was nice and easy, I worked it on 3,75mm straights, vith Novita Isoveli Moniraita (apparently discontinued) yarn. The gauge was somewhat off the one in the pattern, and I am very proud that it actually came out looking like a garment after my modifications of the decreases etc. I hated the straight needles, though, as I worked both front pieces at the same time, as well as the sleeves, the weight of the work was too much for my neck on straights. Next time I'll use a circular.
The seaming went ok, if one does not mention the back, where the seaming is just plain ugly, due to lack of experience and the fact that the back raglan part was several rows longer than the raglan on the sleeves, which forced me to make my mattress stitch a bit wonky.
All in all, a very nice first garment! I think I will try my hand at something adult size next.
Vauvan neuletakki on valmis! Hauska neuloa, mutta seuraavaan 'isompaan' projektiin käytän takuulla pyöröpuikkoa, työ painaa liikaa suorien päässä. Saumat menivät vähän ***, mutta se on vain harjoituksen puutetta. Ei muuta kuin seuraavaa puikoille!
