The downside to knitting sweaters from the top down; once you've knit the body and start the sleeves there's a whole lot of stuff hanging down from your needles. And this has to be flipped around along with your knitting or else you get your work balled up in a knot. I've been making excellent progress on a sweater and now the sleeves are bugging the shit out of me. I have to kick myself in the butt and not start anything (small and free dangling) all the time. Also considering making short sleeves, and must remind myself of the stupidity of wool sweaters with short sleeves. I need my long sleeves!
The sweater is gorgeous though, a great fit and very, very blue.
Even more blue than this! When I first started knitting I almost thought it was too blue. I love blue!
Blue like the summer sky, like fjords and the great wide ocean. I long to go to the summer house soon... But first I have to finish the darned sleeves!
