I know you’ve been waiting with baited breath to see if picking up around my steeked sleeve opening would hold as I knit my sleeves. You haven’t?!
Well, I was holding my breath, even as I did it. And, guess what, I found one more skein of the pink. Yay.
On the inside you can see the crochet work I did and the cut ends.
On the outside, the pick up is very neat and tidy. I picked up 3 stitches for every 4 rows.
One 3/4 length sleeve finished. I have to say that this construction sure makes short work of sleeve knitting. I love that.
As I approach the end of this large experiment I cast on for a new project. I’m holding it as a carrot in front of this sweater so that I get it done.
I can’t be the only one who does this, am I?
