The instructions on my cardigan tell me to finish knitting the five pieces and block into shape, before sewing up. I ransacked my memory for a bit, to see if I could remember blocking before sewing on any other projects. Then I had to torture my memory a bit more to try to remember when I last knit something that required seaming. Eventually I enlisted the aid of Ravelry and discovered that the last jumper I knit with seams was an argyle vest, in December 2010. Since then I have knit 14 adults jumpers and six baby jumpers, with nary a seam between them. It's not even that I hate seaming, it's just those are the designs that appeal to me. So here it is, in bits, blocking and waiting only for the seams, button bands and that most important of accessories, the buttons themselves, which haven't been purchased yet.
