If not off the island, at least moving closer to the mainland.
One sleeve done,
the second one started.
After the Olympics, when I returned to the Waterloo Fair Isle, I picked up the called-for, 5 mm needles and started in where I had left off. After an inch or so of knitting, I took a good look at the stitches and it seemed to me that the post-Olympic stitches were bigger than the pre-Olympic stitches. With my memory, I will never know for sure but it appears that I might have forgotten to switch up to the larger needle size after completing the ribbing.
That would mean that the pre-Olympic portion of the sleeve is knit on a 4 mm and the post-Olympic portion is knit on a 5mm.
And I am here to tell you that it is going to stay that way. Sleeve number two will have to be done the same way. Today, I will begin the fair isle portion of the second sleeve on the 4 mm and see if it resembles sleeve number one. If not, then I have no idea what I did and Waterloo will have sleeves with disparate DNA. And I will love it all the more for it's uniqueness.
