I am weirdly sticking my arm through the neck hole of my Mithril sweater to try on the sleeve for length. I’m convinced tape measures lie and this careful effort to try the sleeve on without dislodging the needles will give me the precise fit I’m looking for.
I knew from the outset I would be playing yarn chicken on this one. I’ve got to save enough yarn for the picked up neckline, so I’m going to do the sleeves and then get as much length as I can on the body, leaving an ounce or so of yarn to cast off and do the neck.
I adore the cable down the front. It’s so simple and understated, and it also gives you something to look forward to every few rows as you’re knitting.
