While at the beach last week, I cast on my custom raglan pullover to begin our 8-hour car journey to North Carolina. I love knitting with Cascade Cloud and the start of the project was fairly easy and smooth. My numbers were working out (although I'll admit that I could have made the neck opening a bit smaller) and I finished the body of the pullover by mid-week allowing me to pick up the sleeve stitches near the end of our holiday.
Knitting away, I noted that my skinny arms did not need the 13 inches that the sleeve was creating so I frogged back to start my decrease earlier than before. Moving on, I then discovered that my final skein of Cascade Cloud was not going to produce two sleeves. What to do?
Yup, you guessed it. I frogged back again thinking that I would knit 3/4 sleeves instead. Fast forward: I didn't like the way the pullover looked with less-than-full length sleeves. So, I'm starting this sleeve again and will knit until the sleeve reaches my wrist. I'm going to have to see if my LYS can order me one skein of this color -- fingers crossed -- because, if you recall, I bought this yarn while out in Portland, OR!
I hope my persistence (and patience) will be rewarded....
