Here is the lining. It is the first time I have done a lining. Really tough
I used the sweater as a basic pattern and made a very simple tunic with the silk. Then I turned the sweater inside out and hand stitched the lining to the sweater. I attached it to the neck, shoulder seams, tacked it under the arm and in four places on the cuff.
Veni, vidi, kniti.
Regardless of problems, I'm sure she'll love it and I think you did a great job. Just in time for the really cold stuff too. It looks toasty! I'm curious about how you attached the lining also. .
I hate to burst everyones idea of my professional talent but I took the sweater to my knitting group and had one of them try it on and it was tight in one arm. So i am cutting the lining out and will try again if i can find some more silk around here. Otherwise she gets it without.
Oh well, better luck next time :-)
It looks great. How did you stitch it without it going through the yarn ? I am sure your sister is going to love it.
I have lined a few sweaters and it is a tough job. I can only say WOW for yours. It is absolutely beautiful. Your sister will be so glad to receive this.
That looks great--really professional!
