My sister and I were in charge of activities on this camping trip. We planned none.
I had joked about having "steeking" being an activity, but was sure I was going to get to it after I'd done all the preparation needed for a camping trip. I didn't.
So it turned out to be something to do while we were there. (Hey, you can't play dodge ball, wade in the creek, or hike all the time!)
I cleared a space on the Stump By The Fire, and started in.
I didn't bother sewing stay stitches on these, because I planned to sew up the sleeves using mattress stitch right away, and they aren't going to be under any stress. I just sort of eyeballed a line down the middle.
The back side was fairly attractive.
But apparently the euphoria of cutting apart knitting got to me, because modeling them seemed like an appropriate behavior.
And then it was serious time.
They went together fairly easily, although I'm not thrilled with the seam myself, it will definitely do.
Once they were seamed, I couldn't resist a little creative basting.
I did get one sewn into the armhole, but realized afterwards that I'd wandered off the straight line and have to pick it out. After that I put them away in a fit of pique and darned an old sock instead. Plenty of time to seam, weave ends, wash and block before Saturday, right?
