Just look at that lovely switching of direction of the grain in the knitted fabric ! All knitted in, seamlessly, and very tidy. Isnt’ it just so exquisitely clever ? Just wonderful is the Elizabeth Zimmermann Shirt Yoke seamless sweater design ! I have done things a bit differently overall, but stayed true through the shirted yoke section at least, because that is the element of design I’ve wanted to learn. And learn I did. And I love, love, love the EZ Seamless Shirt Yoke !!!!
Am finishing off the neck with something different for me, as edge for a K2/P2 rib, I’m trying a 2-stitch i-cord bind-off ! Yes, the highly esteemed and beloved Elizabeth Zimmermann ~ Mother of Modern Knitting ~ is responsible for this knit-trick of the “i-cord” , and brought it into the limelight with so many of her designs, as applied, cast-on, bind-off, and anything in between. I don’t know why people just don’t refer to it as the ‘ EZ cord’ , or even the E-cord (for Elizabeth). I think I shall for fun. (call it the e-cord). I’m going to just ‘toss one on’ each of these neck finishes as a bit of an afterthought, because quite frankly… Everybody’s Doing It !

Edit in : Both His & Hers sweaters are all done, washed, blocked. Need to just sew on the “hand-knit by Jennifer” labels, photograph & post final pictures of them…. then send them off to Mr & Mrs Homesteaders in Michigan. Yay… done & dusted ! I am off for a celebratory walk in the cold post-rainy mossy green woods, and I’ll be bringing my knitting of course. C’mon Emma, lets go stir up them giant salamanders !
