Q&A with carolmelancon

EllieKay asked:
The set in sleeve looks fantastic!
carolmelancon answered:
Thank you! I couldn't believe how easy it was once I was able to watch Ms. Feller do it. Being able to practice on a small sample without worrying about messing up a real garment really eliminated the intimidation factor.
Valdareia asked:
Love tje color and shine on the yarn, what it is?
carolmelancon answered:
It's from ggh in Italy. The line is Tara (72% cotton, 28% nylon) The ball band says Farbe 003 and Partie 48193. I assume the first is color and second is dye lot, but I don't know Italian.
PegsPendorf asked:
Thank you so very much for sharing this. It is inspiring to think that I, too may also be able to learn how to do this. Would love to get a copy of your pattern, we have two sets of friends who have each had a baby in the past two weeks.

The instructions are included in the free Craftsy class "Short Rows" (http://www.craftsy.com/class/short-rows/96), I highly recommend taking the class. It's free, you get to follow along with the wonderful instructor (I find it so helpful to be able to see it done), and you get access to instructions you can print to keep in your project bag. You can watch the class as often as you want at any time. I"m sure you will be able learn how to do this, Ms. Feller is a great teacher.
B Freed asked:
Beautiful and interesting detail. The seam looks perfectly aligned from the angle of the picture; very high quality.
carolmelancon answered:
That is the beauty of this technique, the short-row shoulders are joined with a three needle bindoff and you pick up stitches around the armscye and "build-in" the sleeve cap with short rows so it's almost "seamless".
