Yup…that’s right. Sleeve hell. I hate making sleeves. Miles of stockinette, endlessly going in little circles. But I SOOOO want this sweater, I’ve wanted to make this sweater forever, because I can not wait to wear it. I like the construction of the sleeves, from what I’ve read of the pattern. It seems easy, but getting to the point where sleeve meets yoke? Absolutely miserable. Especially since I decided to add two inches to the sleeves, because I like my sleeves to cover my hands a bit.
So, what’s a girl to do? I’m going to cast on, with that gradient blue merino that hasn’t been happy with anything I’ve tried to make with it, this:
I plan to do increases until I hit the halfway point in my ball of wool, then begin to decrease, and hopefully use up the ball. It’s a lace weight yarn, so this may take awhile, but I think this will show off the color changes in the wool without being boring. Wish me luck!
