Rose's Jumper....or more adventures in knitting in the round
So, with the camisole finished, I picked up the necessary stitches around the armhole with a crochet hook and placed them on three double point needles, and knitted away. And low and behold, the sleeves turned out pretty good :-)
The blouse begged for a sweet jumper, and the jumper begged for some embellishement when it was finished. So, a simple knit jumper (with a touch of crochet around the upper edge and shoulder straps), with simple lazy daisy flowers. To be clear, only the sleeves of the blouse are knitted in the round; the rest of the knitting is done flat and seamed. Maybe a future outfit will be knit entirely in the round. And, for those who prefer this, both blouse and jumper would be easy enough to convert to double points.
