I’m “taking my medicine” right now, that is to say, finishing up the two sleeves for the Blackberry Cabled Cardigan. It’s slow going. :pout: My bad. Too many sidetrips! Had to frog one entire sleeve cap last night, to add more length to the body of the sleeve prior to armhole bindoffs. Drats. Just 1.25" too short.:wall: I hate high-water sleeves, but I hate “ape arms” even more. So it’s sometimes a real crap shoot when you’re deciding on the length of the sleeves. You can never trust the pattern to be a perfect fit, at least not for me!
I knit up one full sleeve; then clip the shoulder seams together for the Front and Back; then clip the sleeve into place; then clip the sleeve seam and side seams. Then try it on! And BEFORE committing to the second sleeve BTW!
Sigh. I’m so ready to begin the Nonpareil. I’ve read lots of good things about it. And no errors in the pattern, how nice is THAT??? in these days of sloppy pattern writing! Designers are pressured to crank out designs by the dozens. Deadlines, etc.
We suffer with them.
