More Theoretical Sweater

Clearly, I did not rip out the theoretical sweater. It takes me a little longer to pick out the mistakes — probably because it’s almost 3 times as long now! I’m just past the sleeve shaping, and ready to start the V-neck decreases. The front should go really fast now, all stockinette with decreases every other row.

Yesterday at Starbucks (they reopened, for those of you who care about my coffee needs) a woman asked me if it was a sleeve. I’m already self concious about my arms, so that wasn’t so helpful. But all the stockinette curls in, so maybe it just looked like a sleeve in the round to someone who doesn’t knit. The woman’s daughter was cute too, she was middle school-early high school, and was telling me how she just finished crocheting a scarf, and it took her a long time, but her next project was going to be an afghan.

And if you’ve made it this far in another one of my knitting posts, I have a question: Do you think I should add the braid pattern to the sleeves as well? It’s about 4 inches wide, and part of me thinks the cable is best left just on the front, but part of me really loves the sleeves on Mariah (of course, I have plans to make Mariah … eventually … so maybe I want to keep the two sweaters really different. Hmmm. Decisions.

This sweater, on the cover also has nifty stuff on the sleeves that then goes up around the hood. But without the bobbles. Hate the bobbles. So yeah, I should probably save “stuff on sleeves” for another sweater…
