Hi ladies and gents: I am a newly addicted returning knitter after a 40+ year absence. Because of time constraints - I work full time and also in school fulltime - I jumped back in and have had a wonderful experience relearning the hard way. The shower for the first grandchild is the end of this month and I am beginning to panic!!!
I am trying to do an adorable sweater with a duck on one side and on the cap from “Creature Comforts” by Amy Bahrt. After multiple attempts on the body of the sweater I am ready to join the back, front and sleeves together. - all that I read is clear as mud and not the way I would intuitively do it. Are you beginning to sense my problem??
So the questions are:
join the front to the back and then the sleeves?
Right side together or flat with RS up?
Do I “block” or press the pieces first?
I have my safety pins, tapestry needle, towel, Rowenta and prayers ready. I just need a bit of direction in plain language.
thanks so much - I do appreciate your help.
