But all that glitters isn't always gold. I decided to try it on and was not entirely happy with the result.
If I can see the imprint of my arm, it is definitely too tight. Eeeeeek.
So, here I am faced with inevitably having to rip out 3 days worth of knitting. I seriously need to finish this sweater by October 17th. And when I say finished, I mean all of the finishing. It must be completely ready for Rhinebeck.
I had 1 more skein that I used to complete the ribbing of the body. I decided to use that to cast on the other sleeve in the bigger size.
Another project on the needles..... The scarf for J.
I sent him this picture and he is happy with the progress. This is almost to the end of skein # 2. I have been lucky enough to have a skein that began with the same color as the skein that ended. A little water and friction from my hands joined them together seamlessly. You gotta love natural fibers.
