So the sleeves were WAY too big. Boo. Looking back at the picture of the sweater blocking, I can see how big they are. A few people suggested that I “ease them in.” Nothin’ doin’. They were WAY WAY too big. They were of puffy sleeve proportions. I went and saw my grandmother for an emergency sweater intervention and she gave me her advice. She didn’t want to tell me to rip it out, but I dragged it out of her. Since I had Monday off, I had myself a sleeve-ripping party. Luckily they didn’t take that long to re-knit (as you can see, I also had a little “help”) and they are currently blocking…again. I’m hoping to have the sweater done by this weekend because (a) I have no shame and I want to impress my grandmother with it when I see her on Sunday and (b) the meteorologists have started using the “S” word around these parts…you know the one. Time for a cozy sweater.
