Beginning to Finish

I started sewing up my side seams tonight. I will now fess up to never using the mattress stich until now. Prior to this project, I have always whipstitched my seams together. Now I feel like I am at the point where I should be putting more effort in my knitting projects. I have taken on more difficult patterns, and I honestly feel I have matured as a knitter. The mattress stitch was a lot easier than I thought it would be. My friend Janette sent me a link to Lucy Neatby's explanation of it, and it really helped me a lot.  I really can't get over how good this works! The seam really is invisible! Yay!
