Thanks to everyone who commented on my sleeve yesterday. You were all right. I ripped back and put in the garter edging on the way to work this morning. It was totally the right thing to do. I didn’t quite reknit an inch and a half like the pattern called for, but I like how it looks. In proportion to the sleeve I think. I also knit it flat so I didn’t have to purl. I’m so not into purling lately!
Before & After:
I’m in bit of a crafting funk right now, so I might just work on this sweater tonight. I’d really like to get a big chunk of the 2nd sleeve done. I still have to finish Ben’s sweater for his birthday! Oh- and probably get him another birthday present. Last year I bought him the yarn for his sweater. Maybe I’ll do that again! I’ll just choose a simpler sweater this year so maybe he can wear it while it’s still 2008. Wow- did I just say that? Guess I have the sweater bug!
I really love this sweater so far, and can’t wait to wear it! I’m going to Seed Stitch to find some buttons tonight!!
