I finally closed the gap between the two sides of the collar last night. Three times I tried to graft it properly, I didn't loose my patience but calmly graft, undo, graft while uttering knit, purl, knit, purl under my breath. In the end, the gap was woven and looks somewhat like seed stitch ... well from a very far distant that is. So I'm not going to show you a close up. Life goes on, I'll brush up on my grafting skills in my next project that calls for it.
CY hasn't tried it on yet, it is starting to look too small to me now, and a bit boyish. It should fit her this Fall and I'll gladly pass it on to the little nephew who is the recipient of the earlier Train Track Slipover, just hope my sil won't mind which side the buttons are on. The light has been poor this morning, cloudy skies. But I can't resist doing another Elli shot: FO still life on fabric.
Here's the back. Just don't look at the collar.
And the front. Remember to move your eyes away from the collar. Actually, I don't like how the back neck seam is showing up too although it would not be noticeable when worn.
And the fabric is gorgeous, isn't it? It's a chita from Tania. I'll try to get some action shots later this week. I'm going to cast on for my Socktoberfest socks now although I really should be packing up, we're leaving for Singapore to visit my family on Thursday.
