It is looking pretty good, isn't it? I love knitting sweaters seamlessly, it always goes faster. Instead of knitting two fronts and a back and getting tired of the plain knitting, you get it all in one lump!
So, as you can see, I have been speeding right along! I just finished knitting the left sleeve and yes, it is longer then the right one.
Here is the story. When I knit the right sleeve I was worried about having to use more then one ball of yarn on each sleeve and was so excited when I got to the end of the yarn and it was also the right length! For the second sleeve, I didn't worry. I cast on, knit the cuff detail and settled down to watch Downton Abby. I blame this all on Downton Abby. Last night I decided to measure it as the sleeve was starting to look rather long.... It was 2" too long!! What happened?! As you can see I didn't run out of yarn yet! Yet on the first sleeve I did. Apparently there is more yardage in the second ball then the first. It couldn't have been my gauge. And I put the two sleeves together to make sure I hadn't accidentally made one skinner then the other, but they are the same. Anyway, now I have to rip back 2" on the right sleeve and I can attach the body and sleeves and start on the yoke!! Hopefully it won't take more then one ball, as that is all I have left!
Does everyone have their knitting needles out? This is perfect knitting weather!!
