What are you most proud of? The Kitchener Stitch graft is almost invisible after blocking and while the garment is being worn. The sleeves come right down now to where I want them to be and the garment is very comfortable to wear. The machine steeking was surprisingly quick and easy. I'm so happy with the result!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it because you'll be surprised to see how well your garment comes up in the end.

Thanks Carol! I learned a lot from your class. Next I'm going to try changing a pieced 1960s raglan sweater pattern into a seamless garment.
