The kids are back at school today. Somehow the end of summer felt really rushed this year. And way too short! Even though I didn't do much I feel perpetually tired. Am hoping cooler weather will invigorate me a bit.
I haven't done very much knitting but I did pick up extra stitches for the sleeve of my Romy cardigan and that has worked well. The sleeve has some wiggle room now, thank goodness.
My next problem is figuring out where to put the sleeve decreases. The original pattern puts them all in the upper arm, but I want most of mine after the elbow. My first attempt was too conservative - the sweater was still too big at my wrist. So I've ripped back to the elbow and am trying two decreases on every 12th row. I think this should work.
I am so eager to wear this sweater - the fabric is really nice and sturdy and warm, and the sweater is a nice shape. I really hope this latest sleeve decrease plan works out, and I don't run out of yarn!!
