I meant to do a post about Querido’s sweater, which is coming along slowly but without major mishap. But I can’t let go of this top. The sleeves continue to confound me, but they’re so little, so deceptively simple…I keep having to take a crack at getting them right.
This week will be chilly, too…I could totally pull off wearing this at work. I have a vision, in which the top is awesome and the nine months I spent thinking it would be awful are all requited by its awesomeness. If I lose any more of my sanity, I will take to wandering the prairie wrapped in a giant shawl and wondering aloud to nobody when the rains will return.
But I have tried knitting the medium size sleeve, and I know that will give me a claustrophobically small sleeve. I tried a 2X Large, which gave me untidily large sleeves that I’d never be able to fit into the armhole. Logically, the Extra Large numbers should work pretty well. I’ve even counted how many stitches are bound off and how many rows are knitted, to see if this size will fit in the armhole.
The fifth time could be the charm. Wish me luck.
