So I got under way with finishing off the first sleeve, which I’d started about two weeks previous. With work being busy and over time been needed my play time had to be put aside for later so all knitting or designing was to a screeching halt! Since finishing the garment I’ve also had another much need rest as you know why.
These Sleeves should have worked out quite simply but before knitting a second sleeve or sewing it in I’d decided it was best to give it a checking over. This was possibly the best move with the rest of the sweater going super well it’s natural to doubt yourself. So I thought I’d spend a little time and tack up my sweater body and first sleeve, I was super glad I did.
Just seeing it tacked in I could see ample spare knitting like a loose baggy skin, so I slipped it on and I was correct low and behold. Bingo wing, the sleeve had too many increases in the side edges that it had created a floppy unattractive sleeve on the underarm. Very unflattering.
So chuffed I’d decided to wait till seeing it on otherwise I’d have been ripping back two sleeves and re-knitting.
Whoop for good ideas, It only took me another few break times and a few hours in the evening and I were happily casting on the second sleeve. It was almost plain sailing. I’m very much looking forward to showing you all this design, I’m excited to see how much you all love it.
