All pieces knitted? Check.
Extra swatch knitted up for seaming yarn? Check.
All pieces washed and dried in hot water/air? Check.
All ends sewn in? Check.
Amazingly painful extra-neat seaming started and stopped after about 2 hours resulted in about 25cm seaming done in total? CHECK!!
God it's slow. I'm doing backstitch seaming for the seam that runs down the front & back of the sweater. It takes forever. It looks perfect for the type of 'deliberately showing' seam, but dear god its slow. I've given up for tonight.
At this rate, seaming it will take longer than a sleeve did :(
