Yarny Goodness!

Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Tell me what to do!

Posted by Amber on July 10, 2008

Crisis time here people!  I finished the body of Camellia about a week ago.  I finally got around to finishing the cap sleeves last night – I probably should have sewn the one I’d finished in place BEFORE I knit the second one, because I don’t know how I feel about them.

(hm, I should wash that mirror)

So straight on, it isn’t so bad.  Kind of short.  A little tank top-y.

It’s just kind of … eh.  Like, way to highlight the grandma arms, you know?

So – tell me what to do!

1 – Leave it.

2 – Knit the flutter sleeve (see again).  I’m worried – some of them on Ravelry look sort of big and flappy.

3 – Knit a normal sleeve, and add the leafy detail from the hem at the bottom.

    I vote for knit regular sleeves and use the leafy detail. But then, I have worse “grandma arms” than you, by far, and haven’t worn cap sleeves or sleeveless in years. But the cap does seem like a sort of funny shape to me.

    I would say either leave it or knit regular sleeves with leaf detail. I think that the cap sleeves look good – imho.
