It's cool there's a knitting thread in TFS. I just started to learn how to knit, I got all these books from the library and a friend of my mother's is going to help me, hopefully I'll actually make an actual piece of clothing once i get good at the basics. That sweater on the previous page is beautiful

thanks!

You can still see the stitches very faintly if you look at it closeup.

I set the cycle to run for 15 minutes, but stopped it a bit sooner when I saw the unravelling at the collar (totally my fault for not fixing the loose end prior to washing).

and re-felt

i like the texture of the faint knit though

I took the jacket to a tailor. I didn't know what to do with it.
She stitched the yarn strings closed. You can totally see the stitching and how I screwed it up. But I thought I had no choice, so I just have to live with it.

Sorry for the crappy lighting in these pics. It's the best I can do right now.

The second pic is the left side of the collar for comparison.

The screwed up side is only 3 inches on the right side of the collar. So not too bad. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

beautiful..seems to have many tiny different colours..

it just looks like there is a little "dent" in the first pic. like the thread shifted in one section but it's hard to notice

It's barely noticable even on the close-ups. I honestly know how you feel, though. When I have knitted or sewn something, and there is a mistake in it (however slight), I feel there is a giant arrow pointing at it! I think your jacket is brilliant and you should be really proud of yourself.

Thanks Feline. I agree I'm making a mountain out of a molehill. The people who I've shown the jacket to never mentioned it.
