Progress on the adult Tomten continues, despite the tiny, little voice that says I should be knitting Sockapalooza socks. When the voice decides to get louder, or it becomes June, that's when I will officially listen. I have momentum on this thing and I'm sticking with it.
Anyway, so last night I decided I had knit enough hood and went to Elizabeth's directions for the tomten. They say to graft the top of the hood, and refer you to another page for instructions for grafting garter stitch.
Nah, I say, I don't care if there's a seam. I'll just try three-needle bind-off with the right sides together and see what happens.
Lo and behold. I flipped the bugger inside out and...do you see a seam? I don't see a seam! There's a seam on the inside, of course, and I guess I've always done three-needle bind-off on stockinette hoods (wallabies, mostly) because usually there's a noticeable indentation. It was 9:30 pm so I wasn't thinking it would work out so well this time. Not that I mind a seam--really I don't. But it's fun when it works out, isn't it?
