a tale of two sleeves

Done, and done. Sewn and everything.

Special thanks to Laura (who knit the LK sample of this sweater) for the emergency cast-off advice via e-mail this afternoon!

Gauge is a lying SOB... the sleeves are really narrow. They fit, but they are closer than I'd like. I'm going to try to block them a bit wider, but I'm not in love with them. :(

I *was* impressed with the unzipping of my provisional cast-on, if I do say so myself. This NEVER works for me, but this time I had only two little snags, and after a little manual un-doing, I was able to get back on the unzip.

And here's a quick ode to this yarn... the fuzzy slubby bits. I love the slubby fuzzy bits.

Thanks for all the support... the front pieces come next.

Beautiful! Now I'm inspired to knit a sweater (now that I finally have time). I desperately need to visit my brother soon - he lives a few blocks away from LK, and you all make it seem so wonderful!

Beautiful and so flippin' FAST!!! Are you remembering to eat between unzipping & casting off????

You are so totally going to make it.

Looks so pretty! Can't wait to see it all finished up! That is a very tempting next project!

Hi! First time here, I like the colorway you are using. The sheep (phone?) herd below is also very amusing.

Beautiful unzipping!....and yeah, gauge is a myth, totally.
