I am be-sleeved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Be-sleeved in a singular sense, that is.) I originally wasn’t going to post until I finished the sweater, but I just got too excited. After starting on Saturday and finishing Tuesday evening, I would say that the sleeve was pretty painless, as far as the rest of the sweater went.
The armscye bit and the sleeve width are a bit strange to me, though – the armscye seems weirdly baggy (which may be my fault because of the weird trouble I had with the simple counting of the raglan increases at the beginning), while the rest of the sleeve seems pretty tight. Hmm. Overall this was supposed to be a baggy sweater and I began it knowing that it full well might not turn out okay, so I am surprisingly alright with this ill-fittingness for my first attempt. Then again, it might be because I have placed all of my eggs in the care of the blocking basket, and I’m just hoping that much of the weirdness is solved by blocking. Or maybe… I could just pick up everything from under the armpits, save that part, frog from the underarms up, re-knit the shoulders/raglan increases and kitchener stitch the two ends together? Has anyone done that? Would that even be a possibility? I’d greatly appreciate y’alls thoughts because at this point my cat could probably comfortably hang out in the armscye this baby. Thanks for your wisdom and advice in advance! (:
