So today, in the midst of all the chaos, I made myself sit down and do a bit of seaming on the Thankful sweater. I grafted the two halves of the top/sleeve together and began to feel the soothing effect of the rhythm of grafting sink in. Yes, I said grafting is soothing. Nothing to be afraid of. There, I said it. Somehow, grafting or kitchener got a bad wrap. It is not hard to do.
Next, I seamed up the sleeves from the cuff to the underarm. Good old mattress stitch, with a selvage stitch on each side, and it works like a charm. Again - easy. Anyone, yes, anyone can do it.
OK, enough seaming cheer leading - go forth and seam. I am going back to marinate the turkeys and put together the sweet potato casserole.
