Wow, I look like death warmed over – but the sweater looks FAB!
[Edited to add: I made the XS size. My research indicated that many knitters had trouble with the sizing and their FOs were huge. My finished chest size was 38.75″.] I had seven skeins of the yarn available. I decided to make full length sleeves; I used all but 39 g of the seven skeins. The only modification I made was to decrease away one (7 st) repeat of the gull lace at the underarm of the sleeve. If I was going to make the short or 3/4 length sleeve, I would have tapered it more.
If I were going to work this pattern again, I would disregard the YO increases on the yoke and do a M1 so there’s no holes. I think it detracts from the rest of the sweater.
So that little project is officially an “F.O.” and I can see getting a lot of wear from this. I just love that colour, too.
On Friday, Sabrina was thrilled that not only did she have her daddy home, her grandpa came over to visit, too:
And if that weren’t enough excitement, then Auntie Monica came over to knit – yesterday AND today!
Apollo has been resting his sore paw. Poor boy. I’m going to take him to the vet tomorrow or Tuesday, whenever they can fit us in, to see what’s up with that.
