Beep…Beep…Beep!! That’s the sound of my EZ Green Sweater backing up! My peeps decided I needed to start my sleeve over, and when the peeps speak, I listen.
I had a nagging doubt about my sleeve. I did not cut in as drastically as the original design, so the shoulder extension on the upper edge of my sleeve had to start much sooner than the original — the red line below shows where my shoulder was compared to the original. I was not terribly concerned, but concerned enough to ask my peeps about it at knitting last night. I did a striptease (no music!) and tried on the EZ. They said to rip it. No questions. Just rip it.

Okay. So I got home last night and ripped it out, started over, moved the pick up line about 6 sts east. Badda boom. Badda bing. I am certain that the sleeve will now be tres dolmany but I am okay with that. Progress shots to follow.
On occasion, a few of the peeps and I decide to also get together informally at another watering hole…everywhere we go, we pretty much take over the place!
Lest you believe that we do nothing but knit for ourselves, here is proof that we also give, give, give in the form of knitting!
Winters can get awfully cold in Minnesota and everyone deserves a hat or scarf made with loving care. We tried to use nice yarns hat we ourselves would wear and make a selection of many styles to fit a variety of ages. I hope the recipients know that we were knitting especially for them!
