I like seamless knitting

I’m almost halfway through my owls jumper and loving it to bits. I’ve wanted to knit this for ages, and now it’s proving a very enjoyable project as well as a means to an end.

I’m particularly fond of in-the-round, seamless construction, as like most knitters there’s nothing I hate more than seaming. And being able to try garments on while they’re still on the needles is pretty damn sweet.

The seamless sleeves are at the impressive stage of looking more like oversize wristbands than sleeves as such. I think the 5.5mm dpns give them a rather hardcore look, don’t you?

Unfortunately I’ve had to put the owls jumper aside to work on my more pressing time-sensitive knitting, but I’m determined to finish it before it’s too warm to wear it.

(Excuse the rubbish photos by the way, but there’s only so much I can do with dark brown yarn at this time of night!)
