It looks like you might be pulling the yarn a bit tight on your seam.  The 'fake grafting' in stitch and bitch is supposed to make basically another row of fake stitches between the top rows of the two pieces.  So this row should have the same tension as the real stitches in the two pieces.  The seam will still be more bulky than the rest of the piece (because the edges are under there) but the 'dent' should mostly go away.

I am in the middle of this sweater right now - it's nice to see that yours came out so well!  It gives me hope!

HOORAY! i finished it! *pops open a bottle of martini & rossi*

it's not perfect, but it's my first completed project that's more involved than a scarf or a cozy, and i am quite proud of myself. i made it a bit longer than the pattern called for, so i could wear it to work without baring my tummy. and hee-eere it is!....


where are we going, and why am i in this handbasket?

Stripey Grace!

Can't figure out how to post the picture itself with yahoo hosting...

This one's in a 50/50 cotton/acrylic blend from school products, and the polynomial stripe design from
http://www.fuzzygalore.biz/articles/ada.shtml. It took a little fudging because I couldn't get the right gauge. The decreases are spaced out on the top parts so that the seam line would fall below my bust, and the bottom 2 inches of the top part are seamed together to make up for the change

Wow. Your stripey Grace is awesome, heartdoc! I'm green with Grace envy! I really must hurry and finish up all of my other million zillion WIPs so I can start my own...
