I have also almost completed both fronts, I had hoped to show you those today too, but may have to be tomorrow now because as usual I have been sidetracked this morning. What I do want to show you though is the difference a Cast Off makes to a knit - the photo below shows how I had at first cast off on 3 alternate rows.
This photo shows how I cast off the same stitches with the help of an on-line tutorial video which has made such a difference I think to the appearance of the shoulder - thanks Jo028 for the link!!! It's still a staggered cast off, but much neater IMO.
I have edited this post to remove the links I added - someone has alerted me to the fact that they led her to an unsavoury place. This is probably my fault - it was the first time I had tried to add html links to a blog post and I probably went all wrong! I couldn't even see the links when I posted tbh even though they appeared in preview. Apologies to anyone else who may have been affected by this!
I will stay low tech for now, but if anyone should want to see the link for themselves or find out where to find it please let me know!
