Day 12!! Four days remain. My needles quiver to think of it because I am stranded on sleeve island - still. Sleeve number one, that is. My calculations tell me that IF I can finish sleeve number one tonight, then I can finish number two by Saturday. that would leave Sunday to crochet the seven buttonholes. Deluded maybe, but I still think I can make the closing ceremonies deadline. Just.
This particular little sweater would look great with elbow-length sleeves. In fact, elbow-length sleeves would particularly suit the Green Sweater. The sweater is short, the sleeves would be short. Elbow-length sleeves would mean a sure finish. Sounds like a great design alteration, don't you think?
It was the question I asked myself last night about 9pm when I tried the sweater on. Yes that's right, I tried it on.
It fits!! It is a very unique sweater, unlike anything I have ever knit. The square, hemmed neckline. The set-in sleeves featuring decreases on the public side. The cropped length. It's lovely. I like it- a lot. And it fits. But the sleeves aren't done.
