June Update!

My sweater is a bit on hold as I try to jam on a project due, fully blocked and gift wrapped, on 6/24. A friend’s Mom turns 88. Eighty eight deserves a killer shawl, right?

I will, for sure, be putting on the knitting jets after this project is finished. In the meantime, The Cormo Sisters are joining their sleeves….their gorgeous work below. I have a feeling I’m going to regret not knitting this sweater in natural!!

One thing I generally do when I get to this point, before I get too far into finishing up the raglan decreases…CHECK GAUGE. The one place where I like to make sure the sweater fits is how it fits under the arms. I double check here to make sure the depth at the underarms is roomy enough or tight enough — and I have been known to change how the sleeve decreases are done to make sure I hit the right depth.

Other than that — knit on! If you have questions on how to adjust, please let me know!
