The Sleeve Fiasco.

The Christmas deadline for Silas’s cardigan has now passed. Before Christmas, I was plugging away at the sweater, and became concerned that the sleeve (the one I had completed) was too long.  Because I was under a deadline, I just continued plugging away on the sweater, trusting the pattern.

Showing the partial sweater at Christmas gave me an opportunity to try the sweater on Silas and confirm that the sleeve was way too long. I ripped off the completed sleeve and modified the pattern to make a shorter sleeve.

See the difference? The sleeve on the left is a better baby size (I made note of the length when I tried the sweater on Silas). 
Now I just have to finish the damn sweater…
