Seams to Me

It seems to me there's a whole lot of seaming going on here. This looks kind of rough and not blocked here, but so far the little front pieces are seamed to the underarm and collar, the sleeves are seamed from the armpit to cuffs, and centered and sewn to the collars, the collars are seamed to the fronts and the back piece. Whew! The next step is picking up stitches on the back piece along the cast off edge and knitting the pattern rows.
Then picking up 199 st. (for my size pattern) along each collar piece for the pattern edging that will show in front and go the whole border of each collar and behind the neck. The markers just helped me divide the pick ups evenly. It takes a long time to pick up that many stitches. Like maybe two whole hour episodes of "Lost!"

Once this is complete for both sides, it will be time to sew the pattern edges together, sew in loose ends, then block and wear! Let's hope it fits! And it's supposed to fit my daughter too, which could be interesting. Nearing the finish line...

WOW - it's coming along - I would have never guessed it needed so much "attention" after the pieces were knit! You're doing a great job...keep at it!
