It took awhile to seam the raglans neatly. I ended up pulling out a single ply of the yarn to seam with because the Superchunk is just too cumbersome a thread to stitch with. Matching stitch to stitch took awhile too, but it was necessary, because at a gauge this big every mistake is advertised.
But here we are with all the collar stitches picked up and halfway done. No worries. I guess I could have worked it in the round, but I was impatient to start knitting on it again. One more seam would have broken me, I tell you.
Oh, and an aside. I ordered yarn for a much desired project from Woodland Woolworks a month ago, and waited patiently for it. I finally called them yesterday, and it took the beleaguered Internet manager ten minutes to figure out what had happened to my order. It turned out that I had ordered a discontinued colour, but were they planning on letting me know? Nope. This is not a flame. It’s just a cautionary tale. She was very very nice about it. Apology accepted. Next time I’ll phone my order in, though.
