seacolors sweater sadness


Didn’t have quite enough colored yarn to do both sleeves, so one ended up with more brown.


And then, I tried it on… The body is fitted but the sleeves are way to baggy. As well as a bit too long for one and another inch too long for the other (I counted rows!).

So… since I did the sleeves from the top down, I’ll rip back and re-knit slimmer.

But I think I’m putting it to the side for a bit. Finish those icelandic mitts (one needs a thumb), make another pair MIL mittens, DH sweater, and probably some small project for myself.

In the grand scheme of life, no big deal… but… sigh…

    But on the bright side, when you reknit the sleeves you’ll have less brown on them. :)

    DARN! I really like the assymetry! Wish you didn’t have to reknit, but if you put it aside, bet you’ll get renewed enthusiasm eventually.
